A spam e-mail with a virus built into it is being distributed by a fake ADA account, and CDA is warning its members not to open it.
The e-mail, sent by “firstname.lastname@example.org,” features a subject line that reads “Easy Practice Management.”
Below is the body of the e-mail:
We are pleased to inform you that a Beta test version of our eClinic- Practice management software for doctors is available for testing. Our target is to release this software to the market in the near future. To do this, we need feedback from medical personnel as verification for the authorities.
A major benefit is that a complete database of diseases/sysptoms and also the prescriptions is built in. shortcuts can also be assigned. When we are finished with the approval by the authorities we will fully release this software. Please take some time to review eClinic and provide a feedback. Feedbacks that will help us in releasing this software will recieve a free copy of the original software in the very near future. We can assure you that the testing of this software will not take much time.
The Beta version can be downloaded from the link below.
We appriciate the time you have given us.
