March 27, 2017 - Security

I got this email today so it's doing the rounds. Stay safe folks and never open an attachment no matter where it comes from it can't be that important. This one is especially dangerous

An email with the subject of Scan as requested pretending to come from  Melissa O’Neill <adminoldbury@newhopecare.co.uk> with a malicious word doc 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 email looks like:
