Following the widely reported cyber-attack on the NHS and other high profile targets around the world it’s important to remember that every single computer connected to e-mail or internet is vulnerable.
Scammers tend to send genuine looking e-mails with “important” attachments which contain dangerous viruses.
While they often pretend to come from your bank, recently fake utility bills have come up on the screen.
Don’t open any attachment unless you are absolutely sure of its origin and you expect and e-mail from the sender.
As for utility bills, compare the senders e-mail with a genuine e-mail you received in the past.
The golden rule is: if in doubt – leave it out!
