Some New Virus Spam Hit My Company
« on: December 16, 2014, 11:45:12 AM »
Nearly everybody in my company got one of the cheesiest most obvious virus spam e-mails I've ever seen this morning.  Something like "we've sent you some money, open attached .zip file".  Help desk is dealing with dozens of people who fell for it.
Amend and resubmit.

My thinking would be "This is TOO obvious. Its obviously part of a psychological study where there is real money up for grabs"

"Doh!!"

Only one thing to do: reformat the company and start over.
