Warning! .exe files are send as attachment from buyer - dont open!


#1

Hi folks, just want to drop a warning here that a guy called pro…2014 is sending .exe files as attachement in his inquiries. Dont open that file - exe files can be dangerous, you dont know whats inside. Dont click on the attachment.

Cheers

Thank you for the warning. I get nervous about these things, and now I’ll know one thing to look for anyway.

Hi everyone,

The buyer named “********” sent me a zip file that contains an exe file just now. And also look what he said

"hello sir/madam hows u??? hope u r doing well

i need a logo desinger check all requriments in this file thanku so much

file pass is 1234"

His profile says he is from *********. I did download the zip file, but didn’t extract it. I think people like him target the new comers. Shouldn’t Fiverr authority do something about it?

Ciao…

If some body sending you .exe file with buyer requirement they are always dangerous.
You never know he/she may be trying to steal vital information from you like password and bankdetails and other.

Yes, that’s exactly what came to my mind when I saw the exe file inside the zip file.
