Malicious email

There appears to be a fraudulent email in circulation today from “IUGS –” with the subject line “IUGS Directory“.   IUGS is the International Union of Geological Sciences and the inappropriate use of the IUGS address appears to be an attempt to target geoscientists.

Opening the email may not cause damage to your computer but we have been advised that the links and attachments are malicious. 

The email may be deleted safely.
