Threaded View
Just got this email today. I've never seen this type of attack before.
it had an attachment in zip format that contained the file
"DD269901.exe". Naturally I didn't bother to open it but it might have
caught me out if I actual had a Visa credit card!

Slatts.

Had five, to different addresses, today.  If I hadn't seen the .zip
attachment (I never open them) I might almost have been fooled since we
just had a transaction with PC Tools.
