Over the past few days, we have seen a high number of phishing emails targeting our staff. Members have also reported attempts that look to be related. Most of these phishing emails contain a link to an encrypted file accompanied by a password.
These emails are slightly more convincing than regular phishing attempts. In many cases they might be sent under the name of a colleague or someone you know from the RIPE community, often sent as a reply to an existing email thread. As always, please be alert and take care when downloading files or opening attachments.
