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.
