Fake Companies House “FW: (CC01) Company Complaint” delivers Trickbot via equation editor exploits — 5 Comments

  1. Got this and attempted to open the attachment — because by unfortunate timing it arrived a few hours after I’d contacted Companies House, so I’m expecting an email from them. LibreOffice repeatedly failed to open the attachment, and I was forwarding it to a friend to open with MS Office when I noticed the unusual email address. There’s an unused trial version of MS Office lying around somewhere on this tablet, but I assume it’s a newer version as the tablet is only 18 months old.

    • If you only tried to open it in Libre Office, then you should be safe because as far as I am aware these only run in Microsoft Office that hasn’t been patched to fix the exploit.
