Infected Larry Forman eMail

Warning! Infected file link in emailBe aware that there is a very suspicious email floating around, alledgedly from Larry Foreman Law office in the US. The one I got had a subject of Re: RE: subpoena, a worrying subject as I'm sure you would agree. Of course it's a fake and although it states that there is a Doc to view at the link within the email, it is a spoofed address that actually points to myhudson{dot}org and is not a doc file but a self running php file that will no doubt infect your computer with malware at the least...

Warning! Infected BitCoin eMail

Warning! Infected Bitcoin spoof emailJust received a spam infected email alledgedly from blackinbox{dot}org with the subject of Re:Salary [$1000 /week] It starts off with "I just joined the Bitc0inC0de" and goes on to offer a link to a russian website which will probably download a file to infect your computer to possibly steal your data or even encrypt your data and files requiring that you have to pay the criminals an amount of money in the hopes that you might get an unlock code.

In fact all you would be doing if you paid is...

Warning! Infected Video linking email

Warning! Infected Video in emailLatest infected email includes a link to view a Video file, alledgedly! With a subject of Re: CV 678 (might differ) coming from altovivento {dot} com which in one version at least starts off "A frined of mine invested in Uber..." and the video links to a hacked word press site at pranibali{dot}com

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.

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.

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

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.
