Beware - when you do get zip/rar file of buyer requirement

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

recently i got a buyer message. he had mentioned - he wanted to buy my gig and he had sent a rar / zip file of his requirement.

when i did open that attachment - i got socked - that compressed file was exe and doc file - which is too dangerous virus like “ranshamware”

i’m quite aware about that. so i stop that before hack my pc and fiverr account.

SO please beware and careful about opening zip file of buyer message. it can be virus and hack your account.

Good point. You can also take these steps as a precaution-

  • Check that your firewall and antivirus are updated.
  • Look at the file extension- if unfamiliar, research it.
  • Scan the fie before you open it.
  • Check the users feedback.
