The zip file contains the malicious file: 'Download_Bill.exe' that will infect the victims' computers with a virus, Trojan horse, spyware or other malware, if they attempt to open it.

If the recipients' computers have become infected with a malicious Trojan horse, the cybercriminals behind the email messages will be able to access and take control of their computers remotely from anywhere around the world. They may spy on them, use their computers to commit cybercrimes, or steal their personal and financial information.
