An old-fashioned scam mail attempts to convince you that your IP
address is sending out emails due to worms. That applies if your ISP
uses static IP address. The mail will then include a “patch” where you
can click/download and install on your PC to prevent remove the worm.


Experienced guys will simply delete such a mail. But if you are not
sure and you received the same mail, note that the patch is in fact a
trojan or malware (i.e. virus).

We call this the “Malware Scam”, and will classify this under phishing scam for the time being.

Please, do not click on the link inside the attached mail.

Dear
Customer,


Our robot has detected an abnormal activity from your IP adress

on sending e-mails. Probably it is connected with the last epidemic

of a worm which does not have official patches at the moment.


We recommend you to install this patch to remove
worm files

and stop email sending, otherwise your account will be blocked.
