    Serious Virus warning - subject : copy, email :

    If you received an Email as above then it was serious virus, just delete it.

    I received an Email with an attachment *.docm and I just thought that maybe this is a new customer requirement, but the contents only shown as : As required, I'm afraid of the attachment will bring virus, so I used email to googled and I got the info as below:

    An email with a subject simply saying copy pretending to come from with a malicious word doc or Excel XLS spreadsheet attachment is another one from the current bot runs which try to download various Trojans and password stealers especially banking credential stealers, which may include cridex, dridex, dyreza and various Zbots, cryptolocker, ransomware and loads of other malware on your computer. They are using email addresses and subjects that will entice a user to read the email and open the attachment. A very high proportion are being targeted at small and medium size businesses, with the hope of getting a better response than they do from consumers.

    The details info:
    copy – word doc or excel xls spreadsheet malware.
