    • It’s unlikely that whatever virus this has embedded was written to attack mobile operating systems. More likely targets Windows PC’s.

  1. I just received it too. Got suspicious when I googled Withrop Dentist which is in Oz and I am in U.K. You really have got to be on your guard these days.

  2. just received this in my school email! thankfully it quarantined it before i opened it but still…so sketchy
