Scam Of The Week: Locked PDF Phishing Attack
There is a phishing attack going on you need to know about. The campaign sends and email with the subject: “Assessment document” and the body of the email has a PDF attachment in it that claims that it is locked.
The message reads: “PDF Secure File UNLOCK to Access File Content”. If you click to unlock the document, a dialog box comes up that asks you to put in your email address and password.
If an email like that makes it into your inbox, do not click on anything, and definitely do not enter your email address and password as it will get transmitted to the spammer.
Remember, Think Before You Click!
