Spam email claiming to be from Interfax contains a virus

January 15th, 2016 | No Comments |

Lately I’ve been receiving emails claiming to be from Interfax, stating that I have a fax. Of course the email comes with an attachment that needs to be opened or downloaded. Rule of thumb, if the email is from someone or something you don’t recognize or use often, and the attachment is a .zip file, don’t open it.

So if you’re also receiving these emails, don’t open them. They’re spam and are claiming to be from incoming@interfax.net. The attachment contains a javascript virus.

Here’s an example of an email I recently received….

Interfax Spam

Here’s the statement released by Interfax as well regarding this issue:

Virus Emails coming from InterFAX – DO NOT OPEN

Please DO NOT OPEN virus emails appearing to arrive from Interfax incoming@interfax.net.

It has come to our attention that an unknown third party is sending malicious emails which contain a javascript virus. The email is spoofed to look as though it was sent from the email address incoming@interfax.net.

This is NOT an email sent by InterFAX, and you should NOT open the attached file.
