Virus Alert: Important – New Outlook Settings

By standss · Comments ( 0 ) Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

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:

Virus: Important Outlook Setting

Once again… DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT. DELETE THE EMAIL AND DELETE IT OUT OF YOUR DELETED ITEMS FOLDER TOO!

Please alert other Outlook users by using the +1, Twitter or Facebook icons below.
