K-State is being hit hard with a very broad SPAM e-mail attack this week. DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENTS!
These e-mails have subject lines such as:
- Your friend has invited you to twitter!
- You have received A Hallmark E-Card!
- Shipping update for your Amazon.com order 254-78546325-658742
- Jessica would like to be your friend in hi5!
And have attachements with names such as:
- Invitation Card.zip
- Shipping documents.zip
If you have tried to save or open these attachments, or feel your computer may have issues, please contact IET Tech Support at (785) 532-6270 or firstname.lastname@example.org IMMEDIATELY to help stop the spread of this malicious activity.
It may be spread via e-mail and Removable Drives (Zip drives, USB drives, etc) as well. If you suspect a computer is infected, do not plug any drives into it, and have your IT support person check any drives that have been attached to it recently.
As a reminder, DO NOT OPEN ATTACHMENTS that are unexpected. Confirm with the sender that there should be an attachment before opening any message.
