NOTICE: Phishing Alert
Over the past several months you have received multiple communications from IT, as well as via Onews, that are related to electronic phishing attempts. Recently, these attacks have again increased in frequency. The most prevalent is still the embedded link. These attachments can be executable files (.zip,.exe, .com or .scr) masquerading as simple PDF files.
The most recent threat seems to be in the form of a compressed (.zip) file attachment “Invoice001_02.zip”, or something similar. The message was sent to an authentic Owens employees email address, and you were likely BCC’d: in the message. The sender’s address “From” is: Bankline.Administrator@rbs.co.uk . Be aware that the subject of the message, senders address or .zip file attachment names can vary as well.
