Thanksgiving Day phishing emails with .doc attachments

There's a phishing scheme in the wild that invites the email recipient to click an attached Word document (.doc) file.

The subject line resembles one of these:
  • Thanksgiving Day congratulation
  • Thanksgiving Day Greeting Card

If you've been following this blog, it goes without saying that you should never (ever!) open unexpected attachments—even if the sender appears to be someone you know.

Always be skeptical of any message that contains hyperlinks or attachments, and be wary of unexpected messages or those that contain out-of-the-ordinary language.

It's the holidays. Be extra alert and remember this motto:

Stop. Think. Don't click!
