Beware of email with malicious intent

It has come to our attention that there is currently an ‘Email Scam’ with malicious intent is doing the rounds.  The malicious email appears to come from ‘CPS Enforcement Northern Ltd’ and has several hyperlinks to click onto.

DO NOT CLICK THESE – your machine will become infected.

This is a variant of the Ransomware Cryptolocker.

If the links are opened, they may appear not to do anything.  However, behind the scenes these 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.
