WARNING my sensors indicate !!

Another Scam, Virus, Trojan ??
Probably, they hit the "Bit Bucket" anyway here at NKX Towers - My inbox took delivery of half a dozen or so messages last week from "UPS", advising of undelivered parcels with a nice little attachment  in the form of either a .rar  .zip  file - now only I know for certainty that I am NOT expecting any parcels from UPS !  dont be tempted to open them especially if your running windows.
The message reads:-
Dear customer.

The parcel was sent your home address.
And it will arrive within 7 business day.

More information and the tracking number are attached in document below.

Thank you.

This weekend I have not been at the computer at all until last evening (SUN) and only had a few e-mails delivered - this morning I have another five of these things laying in wait - all from different addresses - I am suspicious of ANY mail these days and as far as I'm concerned if it comes from an unknown scource (With Attachments) it gets bounced.

  1. Hi Peter, thanks for the warning. Normally when I receive an email I don't recognize or trust, I delete it. 73 Paul

  2. Hi Peter, it's so obvious. These mails are only showing up in my spambox. 73, Bas

  3. Hi Peter,

    1 showed up here also.
    Regards - Jim

  4. Hi Guys - Problem is they come from different addresses, and slightly alter the subject content which makes it difficult to filter - Also beware of other supposedly genuine mailings from building societies and banks bearing "Official Logo's"? not always the case - dont attempt replying either as they'll know for sure the account is active.
    This is one of the big problems I do have running windows 7 (or any other M/Slop O/S)... If I get any security issues with W7 here she's a gonner for sure and it's Hello Linux (Again) ;-)
