Telstra Email Scam

It has come to our understanding that there is an email scam is going around that looks like its coming from Telstra, and it contains something nasty. An updated version of the WannaCry Ransomware locker program.

A quote from People’s Choice Credit Union

 

The email is a fake billing notice purporting to be from Telstra. Contained within the body of the email is a hyperlink titled “View your BPAY Payment Invoice” which is understood to be linked to malicious software (malware) which could lead to your device being compromised if clicked on.

If you have been affected by this email, or you have clicked on any links, run your antivirus software, or install Malwarebytes (#notsponsored) and let Malwarebytes run a scan.
