Advisory: Be Wary of "Attached Document" Files

December 2014

We're advised by State of Minnesota IT staff that some alarming fraudulent messages have been received claiming to be from DHS or MNSure. These emails have included attached documents which, if opened, may present a malware infection risk.

It's good practice to question any unexpected email with attachments - particularly if they include scary subjects or content aimed at making you quickly open the attached file. If you receive such unexpected email, take time to question it and use other means (e.g. a phone call, website, or email to a known correspondent) before opening the document.
