Alert: Re: End of Aug. Stat. Required

I’ve received a couple of unusual emails which are obviously malicious in intent and thought it would be a good idea to warn others.

The emails have the subject “Re: End of Aug. Stat. Required” and have an attachment which aims to appear as an invoice. The body of the message is:

as reqeusted I give you inovices issued to you per jan. (Microsoft Internet Explorer).


As you can see the poor English is a good indication the email may not be legitimate. Also the name changes in each email. The attachment is a html file which has a coded routine in it making it difficult to read, but in essence, if you run the web page the end result is there is a reference to a site with a Russian domain. I didn’t investigate what the site was about.

I’d suggest deleting these or similar emails.
