Just got an interesting spam attempt...thought I'd share:

Email from known sender says they were sharing a message in Dropbox..click on link. This link sent me to a sort of official looking Dropbox page which asked me to sign in using one of about 6 possibilities...for example, YahooMail, Amazon, facebook, AOL, outlook.... etc.

Apparently the page wanted me to divulge my password to one of these to get to a dropbox message.

Did not buy it. Went to my Dropbox account which hasn't been active since 2014. No message for me there.

Whaduya think?

2. Sounds like your "known sender" had a Trojan Horse

Which means that if you clicked on the link, you may now have one too. And all of your contact list folks may receive a similar thing. Recommend that you change your email password asap. Might already be too late.
