    I stupidly opened and attachment that said it was allegedly from Worldpay (thought it was my streamline card machine monthly statement) and have discovered that it's probably malware, see here

    I should have been more vigilant as the spreadsheet was a .csv not .xls but I was doing something else at the time and wasn't really paying attention. Will this harm my iPhone (iPhone 6 iOS 8.3) or won't files like this effect the iOS? I believe the malware infects word, which I don't have on my phone. I've not noticed any rogue icons or apps appear on my phone.

    Any advice appreciated.
