I received what is surely a dodgy dot js file among my emails this morning.
It appeared to come from my own email address.
The file was called New Doc 147_4.zip
It extracts to 1088638831_7974809.js
I've no idea what it does, but I'm certainly not going to run it.

Anyone else seeing these recently?

You shouldn't even look at it or extract it, just delete it and move on. That's how any E-mail with an attachment you aren't expecting should be treated. If it's important whoever sent it can do it again with a better explanation.

Curiosity leads to trouble, ask the cat.
