Seems like a zero hour threat, widespread here in the UK. I received this at 1159am today. Ocado is a very popular online shopping delivery service based here in UK.
Already been confirmed as a threat

 

Am trying to post a snipped copy of the email, but having difficulties uploading

robby501,
 
Would you be able and allowed to post the headers of the email using bbcode such as the example below?
 
hello world!
This code is written by using the following in the source code view.
[code=auto:0]hello world![/code]

I don't understand BB codes, sorry! :mellow:

 

I re-edited my above post to include a link to a webpage making mention of the threat which was created a little earlier today.

I was quite alarmed to have received the email the way that I did because it seemed to evade my e-mail provider's spam/virus filters (GMX).

 

Simply posting here to make others aware of the threat. I hope that was the right thing to do.
