Important - BT Digital File

When you receive a email pretending to come from  BT Digital File (Brandon.Murillo @ then delete it. The attached file is known to drop an cryptolocker, ransom ware and loads of other malware on your computer. They are using email addresses and subjects that will entice a user to read the email and open the attachment.
Almost all of these have a password stealing component, with the aim of stealing your email or FTP ( web space) log in credentials. Many of them are also designed to specifically steal your facebook and other social network log in details.
Please note that the phone numbers in the emails are yet another scam designed to steal your money.  They do not appear to be genuine BT help numbers. They are a fixed rate number that costs you between 10p & 20p per minute to ring and the number holder gets a large part of that fee.  Many Telcos charge you for calls to 0870 numbers and they are not often included in your calling package for free calls or inclusive minutes on mobile phones or land lines
This particular malware is being sent as attachments to loads of different emails today.

Delete all!!!
