RSS Subscribe Spam from Telecom / Xtra / Yahoo email accounts
Posted on 01/12/13 10:05PM

There has been a noticeable increase in spam being received from Telecom / Xtra / Yahoo email NZ email addresses. These include email accounts ending in @xtra.co.nz , yahoo.co.nz etc, and usually includes a link to malware. We suggest deleting these emails immediately, and do not click on any links in the email. Should you click on the email, make sure you do a full malware scan on your PC, as it could potentially cause a compromise on your hosting and email accounts.


This is not something that is affecting our services, but a general problem that is currently occurring on the Internet at the moment. It appears to be the occurrence of a previous problem that Xtra Yahoo had. 

Therefore if you are receiving a lot of spam from email addresses ending in @xtra.co.nz, or @yahoo.co.nz, this will be the reason, and please delete them. Please contact Telecom for more information by googling 'telecom nz'.

If you are a Yahoo Xtra user, we suggest ditching your email provider, and getting your own domain based email account, and using a provider such as the Lounge Network. Please contact us if you need more information about our email services.
