Please see below an example of a fake email that asks you to download a file containing a malware.

 

 

We tried to download the file so to examine it. However our browser warned us that the site was not a legit one:

 

 

It was marked as not safe by Google services. This does not guarantee that the next similar email/link will be marked as not safe by Google !!! So as a general rule be cautious when downloading or opening files/links from emails.

Do not get tricked by this criminal.

 

This is not HSBC Bank !!!

It’s just a criminal who registered a fake email address and is trying to steal your password or infect your computer. Digital Crime is a 1 $Billion business per year. Criminals will keep trying to find a way to trick you.

 

How to protect yourself:

Never open bank (or similar) links from emails. Visit your bank web site instead by typing the address you already know. Double check the type of the attachments you open. Use different passwords for each web site you create an account. This is the registration of the domain name that looks related to HSBC: The domain name was created on the same date the email was sent:

We created an application called RansomSaver Guard. The application first creates 4 hidden files in each default folder, my pictures, my documents, my desktop and one more location that can be selected by the user.
Then it monitors these files at regular intervals for any attempt to change them.
If the computer gets infected with ransomware, as soon as it tries to encrypt one of the files that RansomSaver Guard has created the application will immediately shut down the computer,
preventing further spread of the ransomware infection, then makes it impossible to login or access the system until the damage is repaired.
Upon infection RansomSaver Guard sends out an email to the company’s technicians, informing them about the incident.:

International Insurance Brokers is a typical Marine Insurance Broker company. Numerous documents were created every day.

However it was almost impossible to locate a previously saved document. Each user was following his own template/saving policy and there were cases where users were even saving documents on their computer’s desktop. Different templates were also used by users, giving a non consistent “picture” of our client. It was of course extremley difficult searching for documents by client, vessel name, bank etc…

See our new usefull application called Marine Insurance, a document management system for fast and safe archiving files:                                          http://bit.ly/synergyusallcmarineinsurance

New Windows application Synergy Backup For Exchange that gather all necessary information needed to backup all mailboxes on a daily/monthly/yearly basis. We also used the Windows Task Scheduler to execute the scripts on a time set by the user. The result was exactly what we needed. Every night scripts were running automatically, creating a separate .PST file per each user’s mailbox. Each month the .PST files were being copied to an offsite location, making duplicates of our client’s data.

Established In 1951, IOM Is The Leading Inter-Governmental Organisation In The Field Of Migration And Works Closely With Governmental, Intergovernmental And Non-Governmental Partners. Since 2015 IOM Has Been Relocating Refugees To European Countries.

What was the problem:

Multiple users were accessing a single Excel file that contained refugee relocation information. Very often the file was crashing. It was very difficult to create a workflow that was just based on a single Excel sheet. Excel did not offer any protection in case of a user deleting a whole row by mistake also it was difficult to extract statistics.

The solution:

A new database system was specifically created for our client to assist them with the refugees relocation needs. Users used both Excel and the database at the same time. We created an automated import process that enabled them to import information from the Excel file into the database on their own. Normalisation of the database was performed by an algorithm automatically.
