Be on the lookout for fake copyright warnings that may arrive via a contact form web page -- they usually point to an apparent Google site that can trick you into installing ransomware.

The "malware sextortion" threat has been reported at Brown again (first seen in 2018), threatening to reveal unsavory secrets if the recipient doesn't promptly pay up (this time $2100 in bitcoins).

Another employment scam, this one with a different subject (STUDENT EMPLOYMENT) and sender (Prof Kenneth), but a tell-tale non-Brown email address (sacksmith999@gmail.com).
