Warning about ‘share a folder’ emails

Although this particular type of phishing email has been around for a while, it has recently resurfaced and so it’s timely to be especially aware of it.

An email may look like it is from someone you know, or not, and the subject may be in the form of a name having shared a folder, also named, with you (I didn’t write it exactly otherwise your junk email filter might have tagged this email!).

The body of the message often contains a well known logo for an email provider, and a button to click on to complete the file share.

If you receive any emails like this, or anything else suspicious, do not click on any links but immediately report it to your IT provider, in accordance with your own policies.

It’s worth making everyone aware of this, and especially since many people share files and folders more to enable collaboration whilst remote working.
