ALERT: Sneaky Scam Gets Past AntiVirus
Cybercriminals are stepping up their game again!
AntiVirus, AntiMalware detection software and email security apps are so advanced that CyberCriminals have had to find a way around them.
CyberCriminals are sending out emails that antivirus and spam filters don’t catch.
The email itself isn’t malicious, but basically all they are asking you to do (and all they want you to do) is open the attachment. The attached document itself also isn’t malicious. However, it does ask you to click on a link contained within the document…
…and this is where the trap door springs shut!
The link leads either to an exploit site/page or to a fake login page for a recognizable service. This infects your computer!
Do not open attachments you aren’t expecting. If you can’t verify the sender – don’t click. If the email or the request is illogical, or unexpected, don’t click.
