Beware of "AT&T Customer Notification" Malicious Email Messages

The email notification below, which claims that the recipients should click on the link in it to view their AT&T statement is a fake. The links in the fake email message will download a malicious Microsoft Word document. The malicious attachment contains a Macro virus or a set of malicious code instructions which, if open, will infect the recipients’ computers with a Trojan horse, spyware or other malware that will give cyber-criminals access to their computers. With full access to their victims’ computers, cyber-criminal will be able to spy on them, steal their files, personal information, financial information, usernames and passwords for their accounts, without the victims knowing. The cyber-criminals may also use their victims’ computers to commit other cybercrimes, which will be traced back to victims.

Please continue below.

Therefore, AT&T customers who have received email messages asking them to open a Microsoft Word document and "Enable Editing" to view their bill should not do so.They should instead, go directly to directly to https://www.att.com view their bills.
