Anglia Engineering Solutions Ltd Spam Trojan Virus Warning

with 10 comments

This morning I received the e-mail below. Straight away I knew it was a virus of some sort but some googling has shown that by opening the file attached to the e-mail, it will attempt to download a binary trojan horse on to your computer. So if you get the following e-mail please delete straight away and do not open the attached file.

  8. This message was left on my e-mail account yesterday, I thankfully was suspicious of it, as I don’t know the company and can’t work out why they would want to give me money. In my case the company was also called Anglian Engineering Solutions, but I also tried to phone no which said it was an unallocated no.

  10. Exactly the same as other users. Found in Junk folder on 11.12.14. Googled the company and found this website. Keep up the good work.
    Oh, and the signature on my email was Samantha Bray.
