BOGUS EMAILS NOT FROM MAPCRUZIN

Lately we have seen some emails that look as though they come from mapcruzin.com but they don't. These bogus emails often have viruses or worms attached. So far, we can find no way to prevent this.

Anyone can quite easily go into their email program, change their identity and send emails that look like they come from someone else. Also, some of the worms and viruses work this way, collecting email addresses and using some of them for the "from" email address and others for the "to" email address.

I urge you to make sure that you have both an antivirus program and firewall and that you update them very frequently.

Here are examples of recent emails that did NOT come from me:

Dear user of Mapcruzin.com,

Our main mailing server will be temporary unavaible for next two days, to continue receiving mail in these days you have to configure our free auto-forwarding service.

Advanced details can be found in attached file.

Kind regards,

The Mapcruzin.com team
https://mapcruzin.com

The attached file, of course, was a virus that my antivirus program cleaned when it was received.


Hello user of Mapcruzin.com e-mail server,

Some of our clients complained about the spam (negative e-mail content) outgoing from your e-mail account. Probably, you have been infected by a proxy-relay trojan server. In order to keep your computer safe, follow the instructions.

For further details see the attach.

Attached file protected with the password for security reasons. Password is 00186.

Kind regards,
The Mapcruzin.com team
https://mapcruzin.com

As in the first example, the attached file, of course, was a virus that my antivirus program cleaned when it was received.


Dear user of Learn2map.com gateway e-mail server,

Your e-mail account will be disabled because of improper using in next three days, if you are still wishing to use it, please, resign your account information.

For more information see the attached file.

For security reasons attached file is password protected. The password is "00186".

Best wishes,
The Learn2map.com team

Yet another example. The attached file, of course, was a virus that my antivirus program cleaned when it was received.

This is maddening - If anyone has any ideas about how to prevent this abuse, please let me know - Thank You!

WE DO NOT EVER SEND MESSAGES WITH ATTACHMENTS. IF YOU RECEIVE A MESSAGE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT COMES FROM US AND HAS AN ATTACHMENT, ITS ORIGIN IS ELSEWHERE. DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT - DELETE THE MESSAGE.
