Whilst engineering teams have in place technical controls to protect the Sure systems, threats are constantly evolving and no technical protection provides complete assurance. An attack of ransomware relies upon users opening attachments, in this case Word or Excel documents.
Please consider all attachments before opening them, and look for anything suspicious, for example :
- Sender from addressees of which there are doubts
- Where the author changed the language of communication for unknown reasons
- Where the subject of the letter is non-typical for the author
- The way the author addresses to the addressee is atypical
- Prompts you to open internet links
- Does the attachment want you to enable macros?
If in doubt, don't open attachments.
