"Jan. 26, 2017: LCSD is aware of "phishing" emails circulating through G-Mail accounts. If you receive a short email from someone, even someone working at LCSD, asking you to "click here"- DO NOT DO IT. Many of these emails reference invoices."
As one step to help reduce this issue we are currently sending any message with the "Please see the following invoice" type of language (and there are several versions) into to a "blackhole" email account. This keeps the messages from spreading. Unfortunately it means if a parent/community member just replies to the message (so the reply includes the targeted wording) then the parent/community member's message goes to the "blackhole" too. I'm attempting to give them a response (in a safe manner) so they know. But a message on school sites will be helpful.
We're also blocking the links involved and disabling accounts when affected. Password changes are necessary for affected accounts. A password that is stolen in these phishing things can never be used again for that account. Once collected these are shared/sold to others.
The challenge is that the sites and language will change over time. There have been three sites six versions of the wording so far as an example.
We have checked out what this "click here" link does and it is trying to get people's passwords. It's not ransomware thankfully.
