Please be advised that it has come to our attention that there is currently an ‘Email Scam’ doing the rounds.


The email may appear to be coming from ‘Fed Ex…….. and is being sent with a .zip file attachment – DO NOT OPEN THIS – as your machine will become infected.


This is a variant of the ransomware Cryptolocker.  If the attachment is opened, it may appear to not do anything.  However, behind the scenes this will run a script that will encrypt all files/folders you have access to and demand payment to unlock them.


If you’re unsure whether an email is legitimate or not, please report this to Amshire Support on 0330 2020 340 in the first instance.


Amshire’s advice DELETE the email.  DO NOT open the zip file
