Here is another alert from Sophos about malware laden emails masquerading as emails from legitimate companies. This time the bad guys are sending out Groupon “dicount” (sic) codes that really just give your PC a nasty rash of the Trojan horse variety.
Misspelled words and bad grammar should always be a cause for concern. Keep your shields up!! Do not fall for this or other fake emails, and never click on a link in an email without knowing for sure where it is taking you.
You can check the link using the link checker at www.VirusTotal.com, or simply right click on the link, choose Properties from the context menu, and take a look where the link is going. If it ain’t Groupon (in this case), you got a problem.Share
