Hi there. I am usually good at recognising spam emails but a fake dhl one came to me just as I was expecting a delivery. I clicked on the tracking link.. it downloaded a .js to my downloads folder which I deleted immediately. I’m on a mac.. not sure if I have downloaded malware? I there anything I need to look out for or I can do?

Same here. Is it possible an HTML formatted email contains malicious JS code that autoruns if Apple mail is set to display HTML emails? Or maybe runs when clicking on a link within that email, even WITHOUT any further downloads? Thanks.

I think I’ve been caught out today as, like others, I was expecting a large delivery so DHL seemed logical. I opened the email attachment, it downloaded then I tried to open the script like an idiot!!! It didn’t run asking me what program I wanted to use to run it. I have Sophos protection but now wondering if it’s done anything. So annoyed with myself 🙁 Any advice?

Hi I had an email come through last night and as I’m currently expecting a parcel I stupidly clicked on the supposed ‘tracker’ link. I don’t think it downloaded anything it just opened this document with loads of letters and code on which I closed immediately. As I am on my phone I am not sure if it downloaded anything please can you advise if you think by opening the tracker I’ll have the malware? Should I go to the Apple Store? Would appreciate any advise as I am really concerned I’ll now have a virus on my phone! Thank you!

Hi,
Today I too received an email from DHL express containing a delivery report in .js file. I clicked the link by mistake in my iphone 7 mail client which redirected it to Safari. Nothing ran as such but only lines of scripts/words appeared in the browser. Should I be worried about it?

Thank you
