Beware of strange files

Digmine is spreading through the direct messages we send through Facebook’s instant messaging application, Facebook Messenger. The hook through which malware sneaks onto our computers is a file called Video_xxxx.zip (where xxxx is a four-digit number) that simulates being a video to attract our curiosity,

As always, we recommend opening files of doubtful origin.
