The old MMS Scam is back.

I rarely get Spam at all, via PlusNet but I've just found one from Orange (Oh no it isn't) in my Webmail Spam Folder.

This e-mail contains a voice message.
Download and listen to message in attached file.

Googled it (Other Search engines are, apparently, available) and it is a revisitation of an old Malware that infects Windows computers (Not that I use Windows anyway).

But be vigilant, chaps (And, of course, Chapesses)

(I have Unlinked the Link to the .zip above)

I've had a few similar looking zip files pretending to be Skype voicemails containing malware. The email itself looked pretty close to a genuine one (minus the personal greeting and the fact that Skype doesn't attach voicemails to emails - you need to listen to genuine voicemails in a Skype client).

Had loads, there are also some which have attachments but do not show as such. The one purporting to be from Sky, definitely has the ransomeware.
