The bulk of this traffic is coming through trusted free file share programs disguised as voicemail messages or faxes. The messages are changing rapidly, so please be aware that they may appear to come from a trusted source. It is incredibly important that you let your users know not to open unsolicited emails and download files without confirming their sources.
