danger iconNew infected emails hitting your inbox may be from someone you know, in which case their computer has been infected and the email you've just received is trying to infect your computer!

The give away is in the message which is "I have sent you an Offline Message" and a link along the lines of "Click here to locate message"

The link is strange and directs you to an infected page or site. Delete the message unread!

So far, the infected eMails I've seen have a one word subject: crucial or desi...

danger iconYet again, those spammers are sending out yet more infected emails!

These appear to come from:- From: "first name second name" though the email address used shows no match to these names.

The Subject of these eMails starts with Re: Remittance [Report ID: followed by five digits, a dash and 7 more digits and finally ]. These seems to be around 35.6-36.2Kb in size and the attachment has 10 characters as a name and is an XLS file, or so it claims. NEVER open the attachment, just permanently...

danger iconThe latest  junk email seems to  consist of pretty random subject and contents. There'll be some sort of package that will not doubt try to infect you somehow, but I don't know what.

So far, the only links I found between them are that both emails so far received are that both where apparently sent via tie.cl domain.

Example 1:  email  prefix user name, Two different films with the same title, the same leading actor and the same music director. Metal detectors

Example 2:  email  prefix user...

We have arranged a BACS transfer to your bank for the following amount : varies

danger will robinson!Please be aware that there are currently (October 2014) infected emails going the rounds.

They have Subjects like Re: New Order (as well as Invoice, Statement) or You have received a Voice Mail and the latter appears to come from Microsoft Outlook, though the actual sender is nothing like Outlook nor has any connection with Microsoft.

They also are easy to spot as they have a 300Kb or larger attachment and usually come from total strangers or emails you've never had dealings with. If you open...

danger iconPlease be aware that currently there are a large number of infected eMails going the rounds which have large attachments probably from people you've never heard of.

These have Subjects that start: Invoice or Statement or Remittance or Your Order is Ready, or Fax Report, all of which should NOT be opened, viewed and certainly never click any links and never, ever open the attchments.

These attachments vary in size from 100-500Kb.

Also spotted recently are Subjects with Fuul Card E-bill  and...

I've received a couple of probably fake texts alledgely from Apple asking me to verify my Apple ID with a link directing me to a long URL which ends secure-myid1.com which I'm feeling pretty sure is a fake site.

Be aware that some emails are being sent out from an Israeli IP that are alledgedly from iTunes confirming you have authorised a subscription to NetFlix for ?41.99 a month. To "manage your subscription" the Apple link is in fact spoofed and really points to a zug-bar.com/rus address.

If you were to click on the link in the email you would probably end up with an infected computer at the least, and if you entered your Apple ID you'd rapidly find you'll really be charged for a lot of stuff you...
