Since a few months there is an increasing amount of spam email sent containing malware / ransomware. This email may seem to come from senders you know but is mostly forged or the sender is infected. Often there is a document or a zipfile included containing malicious code. The latest trend is randsomware which basically encrypts files on your computer and then you get a demand for payment to get a key to decrypt it. As mentioned the forged sender email address could be your own email address, some one you know, bank, shipping company, government agencies, webshops and so on. It's extremely important to avoid opening any attachment unless you know what you are doing if you feel it might be legit. If you know the sender and are in doubt always check with the sender !
