Spam Warning: "Tutoring material" / "FIRE INSTRUCTION NOTICE" / "Fire Safety Guidance"
Some interesting spam reached a few inboxes on mathmail.mcmaster.ca today. The subject is "RE:Tutoring material for a scheduled event" and it notifies the reader of "a joint event with Fire and Counter Terrorism Safety". It's signed by "Ann" from "Department of Human Resources."
Needless to say, the message is fake and you should not open the attached "Fire Safety Guidance.pdf.zip" file - it contains spyware.
The text and a description can be found here.
This message is also arriving with other titles, such as ...
- RE:Public Safety Joint Event
- FW:Fire Safety joint event
- FW:Counter Terrorism Safety Event
- FW:Tutoring material for a scheduled event
- RE:Enclosed Tutoring Materials
