Xerox Scan Email Virus

The tricks these guys try…

So I get an email, apparently a scan of an image from a Xerox copier sent to my inbox.

I am going to open the zip file that is attached? Um No!

This is what I see wrong with this one…

  1. Images don’t need to be zipped, it doesn’t compress them enough
  2. It was sent from someone I don’t know at admantech@nederland.8bit.be
  3. It’s incredibly vague.

Obviously targeting large organisations that have these centralised scanning machines that deliver documents in this way, but for the other masses, a real scatter gun approach.

Heres the text:

Subject : Scan from a Xerox WorkCentre Pro N 2918425

Please open the attached document. It was scanned and sent to you using a Xerox

WorkCentre Pro.

Sent by: Guest

Number of Images: 1

Attachment File Type: ZIP [DOC]

WorkCentre Pro Location: machine location not set

Device Name: XRX9679AA7ACDB40111008

  • I’ve been attack by this spam email for the past week. They come from different groups. One thing for sure if the xerox doc scan something it’s usually in PDF format. Do not open and check the sender name.
