This week’s Virus/Trojan email is purporting to be from the NatWest Bank :
If you receive this email it will look something like this :
It’s a very basic looking email, with not attempt at including NatWest Corporate Logo’s etc, the only thing it really has is the attachment, which in this case is another email message called “SecureMessage.msg” , now opening this won’t install the anything, all it will do is open another email like the example shown below :
This is much the same as the original email, again very basic, but this time the email has a .ZIP file attached “SecureMessage.zip”, this is the Virus/Trojan payload : DON’T OPEN IT
The best thing to do with this email when you receive it to just delete it, don’t’ certainly don’t open it and if you do, as mentioned in my earlier posts run Malware removal software and any virus software you have.
From what I’ve read thus far about this emails payload, it seems to be the Zbot Trojan , this one’s particularly designed to steal banking details, so I’d suggest if you do suspect this has been installed on your PC to keep an eye on your account for any unusual spends or withdrawal/transfers.
Any questions you might have on the removal of this virus/trojan, please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll attempt to answer/help you
