For a start, a system administrator wouldn’t ask for these details. More than likely, if you receive the email on a work computer, a system administrator will either do a virus scan remotely or come and see you personally. If you receive the email virus alert on a home computer, ask yourself why an anonymous system administrator you have never spoken to before would want access to your computer? It never happens.
Also note the conflicting information and poor English. It claims a high number of spam and then a single virus. In short, it doesn’t make sense. Be on your guard against all emails asking for your personal information. They are invariably phishing attempts designed to extract your personal information.
