    Today (June 27, 2013), ESET has discovered a fake email message that’s being sent to internet users in Germany and which misuses our identity to gather personal and sensitive information. ESET is detecting and blocking this threat, so customers with an updated product are protected. We recommend that all users ensure their ESET software is updated as soon as possible. We have launched a full investigation into where the attack originated from (the spam campaign where the phishing emails are sent from) and have already gathered important data in the pursuit of shutting down the criminal website.

    Direct link of press release on start page pls.

    Although there is a corresponding press release on eset.com/de, you will need 4 clicks to get linked to the news (if you know where to search about / press / news ). Recommend to put a direct link on the front page and have document updated 3 times a day with findings especially about the data leak.

    Don't let it end in a comms desaster. Be positively agressive and open to the public!
