Warning! RingCentral fake emails

Warning! Fake RingCentral infected fax emailsDon't know who Ring Central or moccentralusa{dot}com are supposed to be but apparently they are currently sending out multiple fake and infected emails advising you that you have a new incoming fax with a link that suggests there is a fax to download to Office. Of course it is no such thing but rather a php file that will run itself when you click the link and infect your computer, probably with a cryptlocker type infection which will cost you a LOT of money to recover, if at all, you would be...

Warning! Kashflow trojan email circulating

Warning! Kashflow infected emailBe aware that there is a Trojan Virus laden eMail floating around alledgedly from KashFlow. This is fake and if you click on a link, very dangerous for your computer safety.

It claims to come from kashflowpayroll{dot}com but in fact is more likely to be from payrollworkflow{dot}com.

What is a Trojan? A Trojan horse or Trojan is a type of malware that is often disguised as legitimate software. Trojans can be employed by cyber-thieves and hackers trying to gain access to users' systems...

Warning! Fake hotmail support!

Warning! Fake Hotmail/Outlook support linksJust visited a forum I help out on to see an Indian Spammer has tried to post infected links there with fake Hotmail and Outlook support links.

What's the betting that anyone who visits will end up with infected computers at the least and possibly encrypted files and documents at worst!

Avoid any domain that starts off with hotmailsupport247.uk/ especially if the link has a .php file extension as these can end up autorunning as you visit.

What is Ransomware?


Warning! Pensions Regulator declaration fake email

Warning! Fake Pensions Regulatory emailSlightly worrying infected email turned up in my inbox today! Alledgedly from The Pensions Regulator with some appaling grammer!

Declaration Deadline varies between September and August 2016 in the same email, and that I am "almost run out of time to complete your declaration of compliance!"

The email is supposedly sent from a UK government email but has been spoofed to hide the fact that it is in fact sent from ukays{dot}com and as is the usual case for these fake emails, the infected...

Warning! Apollo Minerals Limited fake emails

Warning! Fake Xero Billing NotificationStill more infected  fake Xero Billing Notification emails arriving in my inbox. As seems to be the norm these days, the infected files are hosted on Microsoft's my-sharepoint.com hosting site with an apparently Australian domain being vulnerable. So many of these user storage areas seem to be hosted infected files, you have to wonder if it is a real security issue with Microsoft themselves or dozens of Australian users have very poor passwords, or are simply involved with the...

Warning! Re: qb invoice infected email

Warning! Fake EmailsAn interesting email received today with TWO spoofed links to infected files, alledgedly the same Doc, but in fact a couple of infected files that will no doubt infect your computer with malware or encrypt your files!

Both supposed to be QuickBook invoices that I've sent to this Cameron Johnson in the States, one of which is actually stored at absjoy{.}com and the other at sahomebuyerworkshop{dot}com. As I don't use or bill via QuickBooks it's definitely a fake and could even be...

Warning! Fake Xero Billing Notifications

Warning! Fake Xero Billing NotificationYet another fake Xero Billing Notification email going around. As seems to be the norm these days, the infected files are hosted on Microsoft's my-sharepoint.com hosting site with an apparently Australian domain being vulnerable.

As always, NEVER click on a link in such an obviously fake email as they will not be a document as the scammers suggest, but an auto running file that will infect your computer.


Warning! Yet another Fake eFax eMail!

Warning! Fake eFax MessageYet another series of fake eFax messages received and as usual, all trying to con people into clicking the spoofed link so as to infect your computers!

Infected file supposedly available at messages.efax.com when in reality this is spoofed to hide the actual domain (convergedhealth{dot}com) hosting a self running executable file which at the least will infect your computer with malware, at worst, encrypt your files, also known as RansomWare! This particular fake email was apparently sent...

Warning! Fake "New BT Bill"

Warning! Fake BT Bill email circulatingYet another fake email alledgedly from BT this time suggesting my BT bill is for £556.27 and there is a link to download so I can view the bill. The email looks genuine when viewed in a email program, or on a smart phone, but is of course fake, the scammers just use BT's images in an attempt to fool you into viewing the infected file that will at the very least fill your computer with malware and send out infected mail to your address book, and at worst, encrypt your files!

Subject is New BT...
