Beware of "Fixed Invoice" Data File Virus Email

The email message below with the subject: "fixed invoice," contains a malicious attachment disguised as a fixed invoice.

Therefore, recipients of the fake and malicious email message should delete it and should never attempt to open the malicious attachment. The malicious attachment is a compressed or zip file that contains a Windows Script File. This means that the malicious attachment will only affect computers running the Microsoft Windows operating system. But, it doesn't mean that recipients who are using other operating systems should attempt to open the file.
