A new technique is now used to infect your workstation with Malware. Counterfeiters will send you an email with a simple Word document (.docx) as an attachment that would seem inoffensive.

 

The infection occurs when the victim opens the document attached to the email. The word document opens an attached software, which opens another; this procedure is repeated until a software transferring a copy of the passwords you’ve used to an external server.

 

During the attack, no authorization message appears on the victim’s screen.

 

We therefore recommend that you never download an attachment from an unknown source. If you believe that your personal data may be compromised, you should perform an antivirus scan on your workstation and to change the connection information of all your accounts. In addition, please do not use the same password for all your accounts!
