Do Not Click E-mails Titled 'please print', 'documents' or 'scans'


Although a week old, researchers have found over 23 million messages containing Locky were sent in just 24 hours, with the attacks spiking in time to hit US workers as they arrived at their desks last Monday morning. The new campaign was discovered by researchers at AppRiver who say it represents "one of the largest malware campaigns seen in the latter half of 2017".

The titles of these emails are typically 'please print', 'documents' or 'scans.' 

The malware payload was hidden in a ZIP file containing a Visual Basic Script (VBS) file, which if clicked, goes to download the latest version of Locky ransomware -- the recently spotted Lukitas variant- and encrypts all the files on the infected computer.

This past April, we warned Locky is back, in addition  to letting you know Ransomware is increasingly targeting Macs.

This is why cyberscurity training is crucial in creating a cybersecurity culture which is more than just technology - it is the way a company functions.

Moreover, training needs to be done in-person, watching a video just doesn't engage employees the way a live presentation does. Be safe, be secure, ensure your workers are trained and you have the right culture of cybersecurity in your organization.
