Officials are warning residents that if they receive a similar email, delete it.
The email had information about an upcoming funeral service for “a friend” and provides a link, which takes the user to a foreign website that has a .zip file that gets automatically downloaded to the person’s computer. When the zip file is opened, the malware is installed on the person’s computer.
The email the Wisconsin resident received was from a legitimate business called Eubank Funeral Home & Cremation Services. The business has posted a warning message on their website warning the public about the scam and the misuse of its name. But there have been similar emails with names of other businesses.
