|Recent "invoice" malware spam to avoid
have always told my customers to take extreme caution when using email. I never click on links
or attachments in my inbox, unless I know for a fact that that sender is supposed to be sending
me an attachment or a link. Even if you know the sender, it does not mean that they are the ones
shows up as any email address that they choose.
Lately there has been an increase in "invoice" malware emails. The hackers are sending emails
for past due bills along with an attachment, hoping that the user opens the attachment, infecting
their computer. I never do any financial work over email. If your bank needs to contact you, they
will call you. If I get an email from my bank, I close the email, then go to the banks website and
log in there to see if they need anything. If you are really wondering, you can just call them to
confirm they are trying to get into touch with you.
