There seems to be a lot of this being spammed around recently to email accounts. Don't trust it. Ever.

You don't have to. I don't have OneDrive. They're using OneDrive to host malware.

What I meant was I would know it is a scam since I don't use it and I don't know anyone that does. Same thing with linkedin, whats app, and a bunch of other crap. Although those free red lobster and burger king certificates sure are tempting :lol:

Basic infosec rule: don’t trust email attachments, of the old school or new n’ swanky cloud-file hosted variety.

I personally wouldn’t touch any MS Office files sent via email, full stop — it’s one of the largest attach vectors in popping winboxes (I realise this is hard advice to follow for many folks).

Not an attachment: a link. Generally the link goes to a spoofed login page to steal credentials. Attachments are easily scanned and sanitized anymore so things get clever.
