Australian business owners have been warned to avoid clicking a malicious email claiming to be from the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), with the high-risk message containing hidden ransomware. The email was distributed to tens of thousands of addresses just as people arrived at work this morning, and has been labeled as one of the largest-scale fraud email inundations seen in recent times.
- Do not respond to any message claiming to be from Australia Securities & Investment Commissions (ASIC).
