Someone sent a 39 kb file email attachment. A strange picture appears over the attachment. I didn't open it.
I would need to check the file but I'm afraid it's a scam. I was planning to log into my email account from a Linux live distro (like LPS, delivered for security purposes, which does not allow to explore files from the media installed in the hdd or ssd) and open the file from there, so if it's a virus it will not attack my system I think...Is it still safe? Or should I avoid opening it at all?
- How may I check if a file attached to an email message contains viruses/malwares/(...) without risks?
