It has come to our attention of late that there is a spate of email circulating purporting to come from 34SP.com.

The emails inform the recipient (for a varying number of reasons) to open an accompanying attachment to rectify the issue.

We would like to remind everyone that we never send out such emails. If you receive any such email please do not open the attachment. In all likelihood it will be a virus. If in any doubt always contact 34SP.com directly before opening any suspect email. We are always happy to advise.

In addition be sure to keep your virus checkers upto date with the latest virus definitions!

    maybe 34sp should look into setting up a simple SPF record, this will stop spoofing of 34sp.com email as long as the recving end checks SPF records (for example AOL do, and soon will Hotmail).

    As as added bonus 34sp servers could be setup to check SPF records, thus any customers reading mail from their accounts will never get spoofed 34sp mail again 🙂

    We’ve been meaning to do this for a while. I’ve added a simple SPF record to our DNS zone now.
