Phishing: Document shared with you: "ASSESSMENT.docx"

Why this looks valid

  • The email appears to be from a Marist user or a colleague using a Google Drive share
  • The Google email address is completely valid, indicating that someone has used Google to share something with the recipient
  • The links in the email are not malicious, and are valid Google Drive sharing links

Why this is phishing

  • The valid, shared Google Doc is a launch page for a phishing website
  • Marist uses OneDrive for all sharing functions, and shares from outside Marist on other services should always be treated as suspect

Additional notes

  • This is an extremely dangerous phishing attempt. If you accepted the Google Share, clicked on a link and filled in your credentials, please contact the Help Desk immediately at x4357 (HELP) or
  • Always be suspicious of unsoliciated emails with file sharing links
  • A little paranoia goes a long way! Be suspicious of any email messages similar to this one.
