Beware of fake USAA emails
Currently malicious actors are conducting a new phishing campaign using fake USAA emails regarding user information. The emails contain a PDF file that once opened it will load MALWARE on your system and allow the attacker access to your system and the network (at work or at home). If you receive any email, phone call, or website claiming to be USAA you can send the information to USAA at abuse@usaa.com. As it goes with any suspicious email, do not open it or any attachments. Report it to your local information security officer. This threat is at work and home, so make sure your computers are patched with the latest updates and be wary of anything that does not appear legitimate.
