Malicious and Fake Email Message - Your Air France Boarding Documents on 3Aug

The email message below with the subject: "Your Air France boarding documents on 3Aug," which claims the recipients' Air France boarding pass is attached, is a fake sent by cyber-criminals that contains a Macro virus or Trojan that will infect the recipients' computers if they open the attached Microsoft Word document and enable Macro or "Content". Never enable "Macro" or "Content" for Microsoft Word or Excel documents sent in unknown or suspicious email messages. A Macro is a tool in Microsoft Office that allows a user to automate tasks. But, the same productive tool is being used by cyber-criminals to infect their victims' computer with a virus or Trojan. So, that is why it is important to only enable "Macro" or "Content" for trusted Microsoft Office documents that you are expecting..
