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.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the subject title of  a number, possibly 201552 and ebill. I've had two to different email accounts so far this morning and both have the identical contents and numbers, the only differences between the two is the email address it was sent to.

danger iconBe aware that there is a fake email floating around with a subject of "Apple Deletion" alledgedly from Apple iCloud but in fact being send out by "yourimessage.com" asking you to confirm your Apple ID. The link presented in the email does not link to Apple, but to imessagesecurityhost.org/secureapple/?email= followed by the email address that is supposedly your Apple ID.

This is probably an attempt to get you to enter your Apple ID and Password at the least and possibly could take you to...


Red angry face

Even though it is illegal for firms to add you to their business spam mailing lists, they keep on adding you without your permission. This is in direct breech of Section 11 of the Data Protection Act and they can and should be prosecuted for doing so. But they still continue flouting the law because sending you unsolicited spam is more important to them that being legal.

The latest firm to add me to their lists, illegally, is bignoisepromotion.com trying to push canopies of all...


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.

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...
