Phishing Site E-Mail Sent from EVP Account

On October 7, 2015, you may have received an e-mail that appeared to come from EVP Systems (from "sarah@evpsys.com" and titled "Doc") asking that you click on a link to view a file on Google Docs, an on-line file-editing system. Clicking on the link had the potential to lead you to a "phishing page" -- a website that imitates well-known Internet destinations -- in an attempt to get you to enter your login information, in this case for any Google account you may have. Most browsers blocked this request, as did many anti-malware packages.

This e-mail was the result of an attack on a single EVP employee's e-mail account. The false e-mail was sent to all the addresses that had corresponded with this employee. No other information was compromised in the attack, and the e-mail account was successfully quarantined and secured shortly after the mail was sent.

EVP Systems does not have access or store any client-confidential information. No data other than the e-mail addresses was exposed to the attackers.

EVP Systems takes on-line security seriously, and has revisited and refined the process and policies regarding passwords and Internet-based accounts. If you have any questions about the e-mail you received, or EVP's approach to data security in general, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
