The forged email looks genuine till the end of the word. Emails sent to the users contains the virus file attached to the email. Once the attachment is opened, the virus starts infecting the computer and connects with the command and control center and silently gets and sends hackers cookies of browsers to steal users’ bank accounts, emails, etc.

To prevent this from happening,keep your antivirus updated and always be vigilant about the new emails.
