Another Locky email campaign

The new campaign was discovered by¬†App River. Potentially 23 million of emails were sent with subjects such as ‘please print’, ‘documents’ and ‘scans’ in an effort to spread Locky ransomware.

As with all Phishing campaigns end user education is your best defense. With this number o emails, even if it is overestimated by 90% there will be significant numbers of users caught but it and they potentially will send more mail messages.
