Re: F-Secure E-Mail Contains Malware

Hey , I think that should not be a virus that is downloaded from the e-mail that you states as the company is quite established one so the company won ?t do such kind of things as it would spoil their image , and the possibility the someone else sending form their mail server is also rare as the company maintains a highly secure channel through which the data is transferred and stored so I guess this some some other problem

Re: F-Secure E-Mail Contains Malware

I am sure that the virus came from the e-mail. The movement I opened the file I got a file automatically downloaded on my pc without my permission and then it installed on my pc and it disabled my entire anti-virus program and turned off all my fire-wall settings there are many other things that causes many effect that are only seen when your pc is affected by an anti-virus program. Also the email had a legitimate extension.

Re: F-Secure E-Mail Contains Malware

I had a similar problem but in my case it was worn that was downloaded from the ?e-mail after that it just went off and I did not found any problem on my pc , but I later came to know that my friends have received an e-mail from my mail account stating that to download an software that apparently is an virus program that is used to gain access to spy and all the other havoc causing practices. I hope they have a solution for this.

Re: F-Secure E-Mail Contains Malware

Hey , guys I have figured out a solution for this after doing a long time research about this topic as many of my friends and clients are facing this problem and are waiting for me to find a solution for this as I have quite a few knowledge about the working of the virus program s and their effect on the system. Above that I have also figured out that this e-mail contains a BReplibot worm which is a special and a new variant of worm. So I guess that I have working on this and till then you should avoid opening e-mail ?s

Re: F-Secure E-Mail Contains Malware

The perfect solution that I have found out for preventing this is blocking an e-mail from the fsecure company or the either way round we could use a secure e-mail gate server as this would help us to secure all the e-mail that are coming from this server. I strongly recommend the use of a licensed version of any w-mail server protection that you are using as that would help to secure all your e-mail ?s a better way round.

Re: F-Secure E-Mail Contains Malware

After searching for your problem over the internet and other forums site I found out that the e-mail as not send by any employee from the company but it is instead send from an groups of attackers that are using the company server to send this malware dipped e-mails . The most important e-mail that is now send by the high profile manager from the e-mail company states that the e-mail contain a special type of virus that goes undetected and this virus in ?turn activates a trogon horse and that leads to a sequence of attracts and problems

Re: F-Secure E-Mail Contains Malware

Thanks you guys m, for this reply as this was the most important solution that you guys gave me was that the w-mail was send by a group of attackers so as they could gain an access to my id and then steal the my personnel information. There are many other solution that I have received from you guys and that have really helped me out to take a control of my system that is affected by these virus , but that for the time you guys shelled out for me .
