New account information Attach

Blockchain <support@blockchain.info>

Account No."removed".jar

I just got an email on my main email account from support@blockchain.info. With an attachment called Account No."Number removed".jar.

Has anyone else recieved this? I find it very suspicious someone trying to send me a .jar file.

It's called phishing
Never click on links
ALWAYS type in manually

I forwarded the email to blockchain.info zendesk support and notified them.

Nah, I never click links, my email client also blocks remote content, but this email had no links just the .jar file. Possibly if opened prob steal wallet or something.

Headsup to all of this email.

I will reply once blockchain.info zendesk replys.

Edit:
Oh yea, another safety precaution I took a while back, java is not installed on my pc Cheesy.

blockchain.info is aware of the situation now.
