[PHISHING] Message left on server: "New resume!"

>>>>> A new variant of the Gmail PHISHING mail claiming to be from 'The Gmail Team'!!

This version asks recipients to mail some 'Benita Fuller'!!


I 'm still not sure whether there is any technology available to find out if there is a virus in an attachment stored on a mail server before it is fetched?! Probably one can mark some mails as 'Likely Harmful' based on Subject Line, or File Size Details.

Your comments are welcome.

To:


The message "New resume!" from Benita Fuller (xxxxsergiohxxxx@xxxxrotowirexxxx.com) contained a virus or a suspicious attachment. It was therefore not fetched from your account xxxxinfoxxxx@xxxxxpo.com and has been left on the server.

If you wish to write to Benita, just hit reply and send Benita a message.


Thanks,

The Gmail Team
