Socially Engineered Email Attack Targeting Schools
We have discovered a new phishing attempt being distributed to employees in school districts. The subject and sender varies from email to email but here’s what the message looks like:
This is a phishing attempt. Even though there are no links or attachments to open, the idea is to engage you in a trusting exchange online. If you respond, you will receive a cogent reply but that reply (or a subsequent reply) will be the message that includes the triggering event (i.e. link or attachment).
Please share this information with your colleagues and students.
