Trend Micro has sent out a Virus Alert today:

Ransomware outbreak:
Fake Australia Post websites spreading TorrentLocker.

We advise IT Managers:

  • Put such landing pages into firewalls for protection of other servers / devices (noting that they will rotate through multiple landing pages)

We advise users:

  • NOT to enter Captcha codes to any postal tracking site.

Be especially careful about anything claiming to be a parcel notification or Australian Post (if you have any concerns, please call Australia Post and confirm any such email).

If you have any questions regarding how to protect your business against Ransomware, please contact SkyComm.
