This week, thousands of invoices were sent via email purporting to be from MYOB. Can we protect ourselves from these types of Malware attacks? Yes, we can! And at the same time, we can increase efficiency in the business.
Sadly, email has become a tool used by scammers and spammers the world over. Attaching an invoice invites users to click on it to find out what it is all about and then a trojan is released. No doubt we can expect to see more of this type of approach as time goes by.
