Be careful with bogus emails that you might receive supposedly originated from pixmania.com . They have nothing to do with pixmania.com organization, which is primarily represented in the majority of European countries. Recently, massive spam attacks are found currently run by the team of cyber hackers who spread various malwares in fake emails that aren’t associated with pixmania.com, even though they seem to look like decent ones. They tell that users won some gift voucher codes of pixmania.com and in order to obtain them, users must open a special attachment, which is most commonly names as voucher.zip (most commonly) or voucher.exe (in rare cases).

Once the attachments like voucher.zip is opened in haste the malware is actually executed, and thus a special trojan downloader is installed onto the computer. The malware might not immediately show its real face, however, hackers may give this command later on. Sooner or later the very infection might appear and tremendously infect the computer.

Hence, considering the above-mentioned information, please be extremely careful not to follow the tricks of hackers as stipulated above. Instead of obeying their malicious instructions, you’d better scan your system with the help of legitimate and powerful security software if you come across any of such emails containing gift voucher codes, besides getting well-protected with antimalware tool, firewall or any other security tools. To make sure the computer is clean from malware infections, we recommend you to scan your system with Anvi Smart Defender.
