Beware of targeted e-Toll and AusPost malware emails

Post by Perrorist » 12 Sep 2017, 18:35

Government warning:

Numerous malware emails targeting e-Toll and AusPost customers are currently being circulated. Don’t click on the ‘View in OneDrive’ link—it will take you to a web page where you will be advised to download a file that may install malware onto your computer. (At the time of issue the type of malware has not been confirmed, but is most likely ransomware.)

• The AusPost scam emails may be sent from ‘AusPost Service Notification’, with a randomised subject line similar to ‘AusPost Track - 123456789 -100-98765 Monday September’.

• E-Toll scam emails may be sent from ‘Road Service Notification’ with a subject line like ’E-toll account statement [1234567]- September 2017’.

• AusPost and E-Toll emails containing links to other file sharing services such as Google Drive have also been reported.

If you receive fake emails like these, delete them immediately.
