Sneaky New Malware Attack; ‘Stop spamming me’

Here’s a nasty new approach by bad guys trying to infect your computer and network and steal your data. You receive an email with a subject of ‘stop spamming me’ and a message body that contains the following text:

stop sending me offers from {your domain} i am not interested.
i have attached the email i received from {a legitimate email address at your domain}.
please stop

A Word document is attached which has a macro virus which, if opened in an unprotected mode on an unpatched computer, will infect your system with malware.

If you receive one of these just delete the message without opening it or looking at the attachment.

Everyone stay safe out there!
