    Hi all,
    Everyday I have tons of emails blocked by Exchange Online Protection due to detections of O97M/Macrobe.C

    Find nothing about it in official MS documentation – at least nothing useful (as usual 😉

    Below the exchange notification:

    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software. Your email message was not delivered as is to the intended recipients because malware was detected in one or more attachments included with it. All attachments were deleted.

    Detections found:
    ********** O97M/Macrobe.C

    Has anyone noticed the same thing?
    (Not really a support question, just curious about it)

    Hi Mauro,

    It seems like:

    1. You are under the fire of a still active malware.
    2. Your antivirus software is doing its job.

    I am just wondering if you expect anything else from us.

    Otherwise you can mark it as resolved.

    This is a trojan and Microsoft documented it. If your mailboxes are flooded with the same malware, it might indicate that one of your systems is infected and the malware tries to spread using your directory. You might want to check the source of these emails.
