If you get an email with the Subject Important – New Outlook Settings, DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHED FILE!
When I wrote this post this morning, I already had 4 copies of this email in my Inbox. My anti-virus software had not detected the virus!
The attached file actually has a exe virus or Trojan Horse.
The email looks like it is from your domain administrator but IT IS NOT!
The #$#%**^&’s have tried to make the email look more authentic by encrypting the attachment and then giving you a key to decrypt. DON’T BE FOOLED! There is no point in encrypting a file and then sending the decryption key in the same email!
The email looks a little like the following:
Once again… DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT. DELETE THE EMAIL AND DELETE IT OUT OF YOUR DELETED ITEMS FOLDER TOO!
