Beware of new email titled Crime Prevention Advice which contains a malware attachment that will infect your PC with a key logger
Received from the fake email address firstname.lastname@example.org and containing the subject line ‘Crime Prevention Advice’, the email asks readers to open the attached file to learn more.
Intelligence suggests that if the attachment is opened, iSpy key logger malware is downloaded onto the host device. The malware has the potential to capture keystrokes, steal passwords stored in web browsers among other malicious activities.
Other phishing emails to watch out for include:
• those from a ‘delivery company’ about an expected order which is delayed or held at the depot
• a bogus order tricking you to confirm or cancel it
• a fake ‘invoice’ attached for a recent order
• warnings or advice from the Police such as our example
