Any help blocking phishing emails with .zip attachments
Posted on 2013-11-17
My business is being besought with phony emails trying to get the receiver to open a zip file attachment.
Some of these are darn clever and I have tried and tried to educate my people. Nevertheless, some eventually get through.
I am on a shared hosting hosting plan that uses C-Panel. The only mail filtering is Spam Assassion and Email Authentication.
I have spoken to my service provider to see if there was a way to flag zip file attachments, but he says no.
I would like to inform our vendors that we don't accept zip files, or that zip files must be directed to a specific address, and filter out all of the others.
It there a method for this or are there other filtering methods that I don't know about? Surely this is a big enough problem world wide that there are some solutions, or at least partial solutions.
