Order Confirmation Fake E-Mail Scam – Virus/Malware Alert

This morning we’ve seen a lot of new fake/scam e-mails getting stuck in our mail filter. Please look out for e-mails with a subject line of Order Confirmation 123456 that may make it to your inbox. This will have a random number and can come from a random company’s e-mail address. This e-mail contains an infected file that once downloaded and run will try to infect your computer with malware which is likely to be a version of the Locky ransomware.

If you receive this e-mail delete it straight away. If you have already downloaded the file then call LSA Systems or whoever is responsible for security on your network so the PC can be scanned.
