Remote Assistance

If you are after Remote Assistance and we have agreed to this, we will probably connect via Teamviewer to your desktop. Please download this Quick Connect program in readiness. We will require the ID and password once this is run.

If we require FTP access, please arrange for us to receive temporary FTP access to your server and let us know the details, URL, username and password. Thank you.

If we are de-bugging something like Joomla or phpList please ensure we have the access details, url, username and password.

Warning! Fake UPS Shipments infected emailReceived a number of fake UPS Shipments emails today, basically saying that they have tried to deliver to me today, but there was no one available to sign for this mystery package.

"We deposited your parcel at our office and we've left notice in your mailbox. You can claim your package, by coming to our office with a hard copy of the delivery notice we left in your mailbox. The missed delivery notice can also be viewed online" and of course the online link is to (several different) hacked...


Warning! Fake DocuSign eMailsFake emails advising that you have a document available for signature are floating around. They have a subject of "Your document Receipt ##### for {email prefix) is ready for signature!" and have a link to REVIEW DOCUMENT which in one case at least links to a Canadian website, probably hacked and containing software that will infect your computer by your simply visiting it! As with all of these fake emails, never click on a link in an email you are not expecting and simply delete them...

Warning! Spam emails flooding the netThere seems to be a tremendous number of spam emails floating around currently, basically stating that the sender has found a "dream job - do nothing and earn money"

Each email has a couple of links which probably point to a hacked and infected website, which if you click on the link (which you should NEVER do) will more than likely infect your computer with malware, ransomware or worst.

The sender's name is always different to the email address used and the amount that they have "earned"...

Warning! Fake email billsStrange email received today alledgedly from petropackaging{dot}com with a subject of Re: FW: bill for september asking for payment of an invoice "sent last week" with a link to renegademillionairemarketing{dot}domain.

Nothing obviously attached so I assume the website linked to is infected with auto executing software to damage your computer, or encrypt your files and infect it with malware.

As always, NEVER click a link on dubious emails, especially those not addressed to you...


Warning! Infected emailJust received an email apparently addressed to me, but upon closer inspection, it's addressed to the email prefix which in this case is my first name. If it had gone to a different email address, it would have been "Offer for web". The body starts off with "Just couple hours ago I saw a thing that helped me realize" and comes from a Romanian email tnet.ro and the link in the body of the email directs you to what appears to be someones personal site that deals with their family history and...

Warning! Fake Virgin Media email BillThe latest fake and infected email is alledgedly from Virgin Media advising that your latest bill is ready. Of course this is fake, the email actually comes from virginmedia{dot}smebusinesslink{dot}com and the infected file that you are encouraged to download is stored as so often is the case these days, at Microsoft's my-sharepoint{dot}com website. Again with what appears to be an Australian user.

 

Of course it is not a bill, but more likely to be a php file that will run itself...


Warning! Infected file link in emailBe aware that there is a very suspicious email floating around, alledgedly from Larry Foreman Law office in the US. The one I got had a subject of Re: RE: subpoena, a worrying subject as I'm sure you would agree. Of course it's a fake and although it states that there is a Doc to view at the link within the email, it is a spoofed address that actually points to myhudson{dot}org and is not a doc file but a self running php file that will no doubt infect your computer with malware at the least...
