    Securit alert: Virus attachment email sent to my BIS email.

    Advertisement







    I would never post these as I get similar ever so often and just never open. Sharing this because I have a gut feeling the wording of this email is a little more deceptive than usual and may get pass some users as a legit email. I forward to my virus protected email server and it's a MS based virus and dosn't seem to be BBproxy. This may change... Be on alert as always.

    The sent email is some sort or mask. It's not from BB.net for sure. Also note that when we open emails on BB we have to scroll up to see the sent from info. Some users may not even do this.

    Great heads up post, thanks for the information.

    Note: The text in all questionable email says a lot, if we simply read it carefully you can pick up on many things that give hints that it's suspicious in nature and should be deleted. Your example/email has many and is well worth the post thanks.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~that sounds like someones pc is infected that has your BlackBerry email address. But the BlackBerry stuff in it is weird. Maybe the virus has a second payload that looks for BlackBerry in the email address. None the less. Good catch!
