Phishing Email with Password Malware Payload on the Rise

Beware of any email attachments (even ones that appear to be from people you know) that require a password to access them.  
If you think about it who would send you a password protected file and include the password as part of the text in the email message? 
Normally the password text looks something like this:  
The password is "1234"
As always, email will have an appended warning subject line:  
[WARNING- ZIP Attachment -BEWARE of Password Protected Files] 
[WARNING- DOC Attachment -BEWARE Password Protected Files]
[WARNING- PDF File Attachment -BEWARE] 
For network environments it is important that you make your staff aware of these Phishing messages as many infections can now spread through your network once allowed by on a single PC.
