Scam of the Week: Watch Out for a Brand New Phishing Attachment

Be on the lookout for suspicious attachments! The bad guys are using a new type of attachment to trick you and it could reach your inbox. They’re sending phishing emails with SHTML file attachments (.SHTML extension). These types of files are typically used on web servers. If you “open” this attachment, you’re brought to a dangerous website that requests sensitive information. Always remember, never open attachments that you weren’t expecting. Even if the attachment appears to be from someone you know, pick up the phone to verify it’s legitimate.

Remember, think before you click.
