If you receive an email with the subject line “You Are On The CIA Prism Watchlist”, or refer to CIA or NSA Prism lists that you are on, DELETE the email immediately. DO NOT open the attachment.
The content of the email refers to Snowden, and the attachment, called “Monitored List1.doc”, exploits a known vulnerability in computers everywhere.
Prism has been all over the press lately, which makes it a popular target for computer bad guys. This is a popular social engineering tactic these guys use, manipulating people to avoid a negative consequence. This is only the 1st version of this email. I’m sure more will surface as long as Prism is in the news.
