Alert regarding computer virus emails (Emotet, etc.)
Attack emails called "Emotet" that aim to infect users with a virus have been widely received by various organizations in Japan.
At first glance, it seems likely that the attack email will be opened for business purposes, such as the name, email address, and part of the email content of an actual person with whom the email has been exchanged in the past. Special care must be taken as the text may be very clever.
Even if it is an email from our company's domain or an employee, please check the email address and delete any suspicious emails without opening any attachments or links.
Please note the following points. *Reprinted from the Japan Medical Association
