Ikea Thank you for your order! – word doc malware — 17 Comments

  1. Derek,
    Thank you for this information. It was very useful and explained the problem clearly. I received this email today (28 Oct) and was glad to find your blog article. Keep up the good work.

  2. Hi,
    That was a really helpful article, thank you.
    I too received this email this morning, and have used your blog to make people aware.
    Ikea emails in the uk end not .com.

    Thank you for making this information available.

  3. I too have just received this hoax email but never having placed such an order with Ikea I did not open the attachment. Having read your very informative article I checked my Word and Excel security settings and it appears that I do have the ones you advise. Thank you very much.

  4. I received one of these but I was wary as I never order anything from IKEA. If I want anything from IKEA I can go to one of their stores nearby.It’s as bad as those Fake Court ruling ones. Those have a Ransommware app in them.

  5. I stupidly clicked on the doc . I did not get any warning about Macros
    Nothing happened after i clicked the file ??
    In my word settings office 365 the macro protection is enabled ” warn before opening file containing macros ” .
    Am I safe
    I am on a MAC powerbook !
    How can I BE SURE / CHECK

  6. Thank you for the information, I had clicked on the attachment on my Android phone and also sent a text to my son asking what he had ordered to be delivered on \friday! LOL when he was back from work, he said not to click the attachment on my PC. He looked at the email and it was a convincing email (to me!) but he said it looks a dodgy email. (My son then said “I thought I had brought you up better than to click attachments”) Must admit it did fool me. Thanks for the info


  7. Thank you very much. I just received this e-mail recently. I already downloaded it and wanted to open it, but then I did a quick Google search.

    Thanks for the help.
