A new phishing scam uses voicemail notification emails to spread malware.

Do not click to listen to “voicemails” or to open any other files from people that you do not recognize. Always think before you click.

Phishing is a technique used by criminals in which they send you an email message and ask you to click on a link to visit a website. The stated name of the website might be for a company that you already trust and use, but the actual link takes you to a fake or copycat website designed to steal your account’s login information. Always hover your cursor over links to make sure they are legitimate and will take you to the right URL. When in doubt, type in the address yourself instead of clicking on a suspicious link.
