Mick Friend Posted June 27, 2017 Report Share Posted June 27, 2017 I am sure you are aware but Fraud alert: fake BT email bill delivers malware Marika Samarati 26th June 2017 Action Fraud has warned BT customers about a malicious email supposedly sent by BT. It has the subject line â€œNew BT Billâ€ and contains a link that automatically downloads the Dridex banking malware when clicked. The malware downloads in a file called â€œBT bill.zipâ€ without any webpage being opened â€“ so victims donâ€™t know they have been tricked. The Dridex malware This type of malware was developed to steal personal information (such as usernames and passwords) with the final aim of getting access to banking online services and accounts and stealing money. Be wary of unsolicited emailsOn average, users receive or send 124 business emails per day and 16 of those received are spam that bypasses security filters (Email Statistics Report, 2015-2019, The Radicati Group). Phishing emails are a threat we face every day and one that most of us are inadequately prepared to handle. If we knew how to detect fraud and identify the bait at first glance, we could dramatically reduce our chances of falling victim to such attacks. k4mrc, kobblers and Mike at Vauxhall 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
