ESET Ireland warns that the nasty Nemucod malware is back as the malicious payload of a fake BT bill.
At ESET Ireland we’ve been informing the public about Nemucod for a while. About a year ago it was one of the prevalent malware infections in Ireland with a 50,42% detection rate, while the global average was only 15,82%.
It all starts with an email, appearing to come from BT with the subject “New BT Online Bill”, equipped with all the correct logos and graphics. The content of the email says:
ESET Ireland urges extreme caution with such emails and avoiding clicking any links or attachments they contain.
