@ALL - Amazon infected email scam

Beware of emails (see below) purporting to come from Amazon (or any other online retailer) that don't give details of your purchases and have zipped attachments.


  • The attachment is infected - Make sure that your anti-virus is up to date
  • There is no name or purchase details in the body of the email - it is totally generic
  • Amazon do not use attachments
If you do have an infected computer use your AV software's recommended procedure for recovery. 
If you suspect that your computer is infected and is not protected you can get a free scan from most of the reputable AV vendors. Just Google "free antivirus scan"
