Phishing Email - eFax

A new phishing email is being used by "hackers" to trick users into opening an attachment which will install malware onto the user's computer.

The latest phishing scam is concerning a fake fax service, such as "global fax". A zip file is sent as an attachment within an email. The zip file usually contains a text file (.txt) and a file that appears to be a PDF file. However, the pdf file is not a true PDF, it's an "executable" file disguised to look like a PDF.
