Malware alert: Fake emails reporting ISIS attacks in Sydney
The Australian Communications and Media Authority has received numerous reports since Sunday about fake emails from news.com.au with the subject line ‘ISIS attacks in
Sydney?’ These emails encourage people to open a ‘Word’ or ’.rar’ file attachment by claiming the document includes details of Sydney locations that ISIS plans to attack.
These emails are FAKE and contain a malicious attachment that if opened, or clicked on, may download and install malware onto your computer.
If you receive an email from news.com.au with the same or similar title, it should be DELETED IMMEDIATELY. Do not click on any attachment in the email.
