    I fail to see why changing the email account password or installing EAM would be necessary. I received the same email message and I use EAM as my anti-malware app. The attachment was immediately flagged has having a trojan and EAM offered to quarantine it, which I accepted.

    Unless the attachment was unzipped and executed, any computer where such message was received won't be infected.

    There was not enough info provided. What if...

    Rather err on the side of safety.
