Original release date: June 18, 2019 The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is aware of an email phishing scam that tricks users into clicking on malicious attachments that look like legitimate Department of Homeland Security (DHS) notifications.

CISA will never send NCAS notifications that contain email attachments.Immediately report any suspicious emails to your information technology helpdesk, security office, or email provider.
