Beware of "The Shocking Truth about Election Rigging in the United States" and "Why American Elections are Flawed" Virus Emails

Online users, be aware of malicious email messages sent by cyber-criminals with the following subject lines or titles: "The Shocking Truth about Election Rigging in the United States," "Why American Elections are Flawed" and "How Donald Trump did win the Election." The malicious emails have attachments that contain viruses, ransomware, or other malware that can infect the recipients' computers, if they attempt to open them.

Since Donald Trump won the 2016 United States presidential election, which have half of the United States and the rest of world in shock and disbelieve, cyber-criminals have started sending out malicious email messages to potential victims with the catchy subject lines to make the recipients curiously and eagerly open the malicious attachments, thinking they will view articles about the same subject lines.

Therefore, online users who have received email messages with the above-mentioned subject lines, asking them to open an attachment, especially a ".zip" file, should delete them, and should not follow the instructions in them.

Online users who have already been tricked into opening the malicious attachments, should scan their computers for viruses and malware, change their online account passwords, and check their online accounts for any discrepancies.
