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.

danger iconYou find an email in your inbox from someone you don't know with an attached .doc file, sent via WhatsApp.

What's wrong with this picture? I don't know the sender, I don't know why he (or she) would be sending me such a file and when I look at the details of the file, it's Encoded!
This is most likely to be yet another attempt for some hacker to try to infect my computer and I will be deleting the email, and infected file from the server without allowing it to download to my computer. If you...

danger iconA number of people have reported receiving emails from incoming {at} interfax.com. These are of course fake with javascript malware in the attached "fax".

Interfax have their own warning page about this issue but if you want to block these fake emails from getting into your computer and infecting it, or if you are on someone's network you can do this fairly easily when using Outlook (other program should have similiar rules, I'm just using Outlook as my example).

Open up Outlook, Click File...

danger iconYet again, the infected attachments of so-called eFaxes are doing the rounds again, this time alledgedly referring to a fax sent from booking.com and sent via (alledgedly) efax.com which of course is faked. If you receive such an email, bin it, trash it but under no circumstances open the attachment, it'll probably send your banking details to a hackers or at the very least, turn your computer into a sender of further infected emails to all in your address book.


danger iconJust a word of warning, some Brazilian spammer is out there trying to con you into responding to an eMail informing you that "Funds has been DONATED to you Reply to this email: (onu_claims2 {at} 163.com) for details.

NEVER reply to this sort of spam, they only want you to confirm that your email is genuine then you'll be flooded with mail trying to get to you give them your bank details (so your funds can be transferred... More like transferred OUT of your account) or con you into opening an...

danger iconYet another of these firms, who DO have a website, unlike the infected spam emailers, that has decided to illegally add my personal email address to their business mailing eLists.

Although illegal, there is often no way of stopping these mailing firms from adding you to their lists without your permission as trying to get them to stop simply confirms your email address is valid so they sell it on time and time again, all quite illegal as you never gave them permission to use it in the first...

danger iconAnother spoofed infected email, alledgedly from ebay.com which considering I use ebay.co.uk is a bit of a warning, but when my mail filtering software flags it as spam automatically, I'm looking very carefully at this. Turns out the return path is to an Australian email address as the infected payload.

The attachment has a filename starting with ebay_(random numbers)_(date).zip, addressed to Dear Customer, Please open the attached file to view invoice. Something you should never do is open any...

danger iconLatest firm to illegally add me to their mailing list is trinityleedsproperties using solidemails.biz. Shame that there is no easy way to name and shame these junk mail "firms". If there was a central body to report this sort of thing for immediate prosecution I'd be a regular contributor! Unfortunately, as these "firms" are all fakes and not genuine, attempting to get them to stop is a waste of time and energy as doing so only advertises that the email address they are using is genuine. Simply...

danger iconAn old one, but nonetheless one worth reminding us about as it is still going around.

Supposedly a confirmation of your reservation through booking.com (This is spoofed, not from the genuine booking.com) and in fact comes from an Italian website, host26-14-static.110-62-b.business.telecomitalia.it

Further details can be found on MyOnline Security website, a great site to check for any ongoing suspicious emails. As always, never click to view any unsolicited attachment. Of course, another dead...

danger iconLatest infected email to arrive in my inbox is supposedly from a German email address and has an attached chat history, alledgedly!

Contents are:

Good day!
You should know this. View the chat history that I've attached. Remember 
it's strongly confidential, so please don't show it to anyone.
Mrs. Jamir Bailey | 597-720-7211
Industrial, Shoes, Movies & Health | White, Monahan and Medhurst

The attachment in my case is called history Casandra UnionFO.zip

As always, never open or view and...

danger iconWell, this was a sneaky one!

Received this email, apparently from Administrator {AT} dragonrider.co.uk (my own domain) asking me to click on a non-existing link, on my own site, to download from a fileserver directory New_Banking_Details which is an invalid link anyway.

Very well hidden in the link was the actual infected web site link which was ezonlinedining.com/securestorage/##filename##.html

Absolute Spoof and a highly dangerous link to a very malicious web site and files. Delete any...
