Lots of news lately about old stuff…Cryptolocker, Zeus…
How does it all start?
Get an email, click on link, get malware, game over…
The email is generally a SocEng attempt to get you to click on the link:
- Originating from an ‘authority’
- A course of action is urgently required
- Failure to comply will result in a ‘penalty’
Simple, don’t click on the link.
If in doubt, get a phone number and contact them directly.
