People are still falling for this type Phishing scam (see image below).
- Be vigilant
- Check the links by hovering over them with your mouse before clicking
- Don't be an admin on your own PC for normal day to day usage
- Have a reliable, monitored and tested backup solution.
The user that sent me this email did click on the link, downloaded and opened the "zip file" but was protected from catastrophic network wide damage because I had previously refused to make him and administrator. Yes that's IT tough love.
