Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Using hereby, while correct, is pretty much deprecated in non-legal documents. Although hereby, whomsoever and so on are correct, they are deemed to be outdated in anything apart form official documents (such as contracts) and rarely get used.
So it would read
Please find attached the xyz files...
The abc of the messages have been updated and the document [in question] has been attached.
"has been" is present continuous, so if I have already used attached in the mail, will it be appropriate to use "has been".
I think it will be wrong if I use "past tense" and "present continuous" together ? What is the correct sentence then ?
'has been' is the present perfect aspect of the verb. Present continuous would be 'am attaching'.
You'd use 'I have attached the file'. We use the present perfect aspect here to stress the result of a past action on the present.
ie. I have attached the file = the result on the present is that the file is there, available for you to look at.'
