Heads Up! IRS Refund Scam

From our friends at Knowbe4, here’s a nasty ransomeware scam that’s looking for victims. Share this with your friends and colleagues.

Cyber criminals are preying on American tax payers that have made the April 15th deadline and are now waiting to hear about their refund. There is a massive phishing scam going on right now which tries to trick you into opening a Microsoft Word attachment. But if you do, all your files will get hijacked and encrypted. If that happens, you only get your files back after paying around $500 ransom.

Remember, think before you click, and do not open any attachments you did not ask for!
