Email Worm Claims US Launches Missile Strike on Iran

An email worm is circulating with subject lines claiming the US has launched a missile strike on Iran. The most common subject line thus far is “USA Missle Strike: Iran War just have started”. Other known subject lines are:


“USA Just Have Started World War III”
“Missle Strike: The USA kills more then 20000 Iranian citizens”
“Israel Just Have Started World War III”


The emails contain an attachment with the title “Read More,” or “Video”.


This is an opportunity to remind your users that emails claiming sensational news events should never be opened, nor should any attachments. If readers wish to validte any sensational claims, they should instead visit a reputable news source and check the headlines there.
