Phishing Attack - Microsoft Windows Example

A phishing attack attempts to get email recipients to download an attachment from Windows
In this sample, the message appears to come from the “Windows Corporation,” an organization that possesses “state-of-the-art manufacturing quality processes.”  The attackers attempt to convince the user to check the attached documents to see if their business aligns with the target user’s organization.  If the user downloads and unzips the file, the user will infect their computer with the virus, compromising the system.
