The tricks these guys try…
So I get an email, apparently a scan of an image from a Xerox copier sent to my inbox.
I am going to open the zip file that is attached? Um No!
This is what I see wrong with this one…
- Images don’t need to be zipped, it doesn’t compress them enough
- It was sent from someone I don’t know at firstname.lastname@example.org
- It’s incredibly vague.
Obviously targeting large organisations that have these centralised scanning machines that deliver documents in this way, but for the other masses, a real scatter gun approach.
Heres the text:
