Virus Emails coming from InterFAX – DO NOT OPEN

Please DO NOT OPEN virus emails appearing to arrive from Interfax
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
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.

    Trojan horse from Moscow?

    • More like Trojan horse from Obama’s CIA or ISIS.
      If it’s a Trojan horse from Moscow, Interfax — a Russian news agency — would not post the alert.
