Email Containing Ransomware in Circulation
First posted: Thursday, 11th June 2020, 12:30pm
IT Services have been warned of a significant increase in email traffic containing the Avaddon ransomware, a malware that is being spread through emails with a subject line such as “Your new photo?” or “Do you like my photo?” with an attachment in IMG.jpg.js.zip format. No cases have been discovered in Trinity but we request that staff and students remain vigilant.
Please delete this email should you receive it and report it to the IT Service Desk at the earliest opportunity as it is part of a new worldwide scam campaign.
