New email spam...From You To You

A new spam and potential phishing email variant reported by 9to5Google has been showing up in Gmail inboxes recently appearing to be sent from you to your own email account. These messages when opened reveal that the email address the message is being sent from is not actually your own email address but named as being from your name. Adding to the peculiarity of the email is the fact that the messages also appear in the users sent email folder.

Social engineering and phishing scams are continually evolving. Remember to always be critical of emails. If there is a link or attachment in the email first stop and Do Not Click. Observe and orient yourself to protect yourself from carelessly clicking and finding yourself regretting not slowing down. You are your own last line of defense against attacks.

Stay vigilant out there.
