Dramatic Increase in Malware, Phishing, and Ransomware emails

The instances of phishing emails that pose as legitimate but ultimately lead to bogus sites has dramatically increased over the last few months.

The links contained in the email will look trustworthy but point to bogus sites. If clicked or opened it will then attempt to send you malware and/or will also attempt to fool you into giving personal information such as bank details, login passwords etc.

If you have any doubt about the validity of an email or its origin, do not open or click on links within these emails.

Every day businesses are being targeted and losing valuable data then being held to ransom due to this criminal activity.
