Beware of Phishing Emails!

PAAR has recently received several inquiries regarding a phishing email that appears to be going to PAAR members.  

This particular email tries to trick you into opening "secure documents". You receive an email that looks like it is a DocuSign or EchoSign or Secure Adobe PDF notification with an important document attached that needs to be looked at.  The bad guys try to trick you into opening and clicking the attachments, and "enable macros" or "enable editing" but when you do, your workstation gets infected with malware or ransomware.
