Just thought I’d let you know about a couple of techniques the bad guys are using at the moment!
I’m sure you’ve heard about Tiger’s little accident, there are various websites that are claiming to show video of the incident
If you try and watch the video the site tells you that you need to install a plug-in
The “plug-in” is actually a Trojan designed to take over your computer!
Of course, hackers have chosen to jump on the coattails of the current story of Tiger Woods' car accident simply because so many people are searching the internet for news about it right now.
If you receive an email from Facebook about their “new login system”, ignore it!
While this looks authentic the link in the email actually takes you to a phishing site which harvests your password and then attempts to trick you into installing some malicious software which claims to be for “upgrading your account” but is in fact another Trojan
Hope this helps! Please pass onto your staff as appropriate
