For anyone who didn't see this article in The Age this weekend, be on the alert for a scam email that has, apparently, caught out around 10,000 people in Australia already
It imitates an AGL energy bill email, and suggests you download your 'bill'. If you do, (depending on what device you are using) you may download a 'zip' file containing ransomware that locks up your computer and demands payment of money to unlock it. (Note. iPhones and iPads cannot be damaged by this one.)
