Spoofed emails from “MyFax.com”

This afternoon we’ve received reports of customers receiving lots of junk mail supposedly from “myfax.com”.

Each email contains a link to a website that attempts to install a virus on the visitors computer.

If you receive an email that appears to come from “NoRep.c@MyFax.com”, please delete it without clicking on the link contained within. ┬áIf you have already clicked the link, we strongly advise you to scan your computer with an up-to-date virus scanner as soon as possible.

In the meantime, on all our shared hosting servers and our Mailscan spam scanning service, we have blacklisted the myfax.com domain-name.
