Do not open email from Interfax! – it contains a virus

Interfax is a Russian non-governmental news agency based in Moscow, founded in 1989 by officials from Moscow Radio.
It is part of the Interfax Information Service Group, a group of approximately 30 companies that consist of national, regional and branch information agencies under the Interfax name. It employs around 1,000 journalists and produces over 1,500 stories daily.
Here’s an alert posted on Interfax’s website:

Virus Emails coming from InterFAX – DO NOT OPEN

Please DO NOT OPEN virus emails appearing to arrive from Interfax incoming@interfax.net.
It has come to our attention that an unknown third party is sending malicious emails which contain a javascript virus. The email is spoofed to look as though it was sent from the email address incoming@interfax.net.
This is NOT an email sent by InterFAX, and you should NOT open the attached file.

If you get any email posing as being sent by Interfax, DO NOT OPEN IT. Delete it.
If you open the attachment, you will need to reinstall your operating system to eliminate the virus, or maybe worse, as the virus may get embedded into your files.

And where did it originate – no doubt from the West, trying to further demonise Russia.
