I want to bring to your attention an email scam that is going around (again) which you should bring to the attention of everyone in your business. It is an email similar to the one below that asks you to view a file in DropBox. These emails should be ignored and deleted. If you have received such an email and proceeded to enter your login credentials, then you must immediately change your email password. If you have a DropBox account, access it and change your password.
If you have any concerns about this, please contact your IT provider.
The purpose of the scam email is to direct you to what appears to be a DropBox website asking you to enter your username and password. They do this in the hope that you use your email password for other purposes (such as DropBox) effectively providing the perpetrator access to your email account. Alternatively it might direct you to what appears to be an email login for services such as Office 365, Outlook or Gmail prompting to enter your email login details.
This is a good reminder that the password you use for your email account should never be used for any other purpose. Come up with a unique password that is only used for accessing your email account as you would likely do with your bank login password. Using the same password for multiple systems is obviously convenient given you have less passwords to remember but it does leave you vulnerable to these compromises. If you currently use the same password for your email service as other services, we strongly recommend you change your email password now to something unique..
