- Blocking to receive emails containing “a zip file with password”
Implementation date: September 19, 2022
As part of an enhancement of information security, our email security will be updated from September 19, 2022, so that when an email attached with a zip file protected with password is sent to Ono group companies, the email (both the body text and attached file) will not be delivered to Ono. Instead, an error email will be sent to the sender as a notification of transmission failure.
Please ask your counterpart at our company how to transfer the data with alternative solutions.
It is difficult to detect zip-encrypted malware (computer virus) with virus scanning tools, and this security problem has come to be abused as an infection tactic by malware such as EMOTET. Considering this situation and impact on our information security, we have decided not to receive any emails attached with a zip file protected by password as a security measure.
We would very much appreciate your understanding and cooperation on our company's information security reinforcement.
