Alert: Phishing Attack

We've seen several instances recently of clients hit by a nasty password-stealing email(a "phishing" attack).  DO NOT click on it; if you have already fallen for this, immediately change your email password and check your settings and mail folders for any unusual activity.  (And  you may be tired of hearing this but your email account password should be unique:  different from every other password in your life).

Mac users, you are NOT safer than PC users for this kind of thing so don't get complacent!

Here's what to look for:
  • Comes from someone you know
  • Subject like "Important Newsletter (Your Friend's Name)" or "Confidential Document"
  • Text like the following examples:
