The problem with this fake update was its use of real names and got routed to a unsuspecting user.
My question ot the Eset staff, is how the Spammers where able to get the names and job titles for 3 major people in our organization.  Their selections they made where right on the money.
I do not believe they are listing on the company website and wondered if  you had any idea of how they harvested these names.  Or if they had to do social engineering by calling a facility or the corporate office.
Any feedback would help us tighten security.
