I must warn you regarding email attachments and the “Locky” encryption virus. You can be particularly vulnerable if you post online and/or expect responses that may have Word attachments (resumes, applications, invoices, shipping info). These emails can come from/or APPEAR to come from people you know.
Firstly, demand all attachments in PDF. If they do not comply, they do not get response.
Secondly, even if it is PDF or APPEAR to be PDF, it may not be… the extension can be hidden while attached to the email. I always recommend saving the attachment onto your computer and then scanning with your antivirus/security software BEFORE you open.
Also, you can call us and we’ll check the attachment for you. The below link is about Locky virus targeting Hospitals. But they are targeting EVERYONE they can get ransom from.
