    • Exactly as it says in the black box in the [post
      At this time, these only affect windows computers. They do not affect a Mac, IPhone, Blackberry, Windows phone or Android phone. The malicious word or excel file can open on any system, and potentially the macro will run on windows or mac BUT the downloaded malware that the macro tries to download is windows specific, so will not harm or infect any other computer except a windows computer. You will not be infected if you do not have macros enabled in Excel or word.

    • there are no problems or worries on an iPhone
      by replying, you have not put yourself at risk, but have just added yet another unwanted email to the innocent victims of this malware scam and made their life and work even harder

  3. Hi, we recently had our carpets cleaned and so I open this document by mistake thinking it could be them and as I open started to get suspecious about it so looked it up and arrived here. My word setting are already disable all macros with notification and I am currenly running a Norton scan and ESET scan to make sure. I have cleared my internet history as there was a something in there I found suspecious. Anything else I should do?
