Emails from Harrick Plasma carrying viruses

Harrick Plasma is currently experiencing a massive influx of virus-carrying emails that may also extend to their contacts at Brown University.

In these emails, the sender’s name does not appear to match the sender’s email address. These emails also contain either a weblink or a Microsoft Word document as an attachment (.doc file).

Please DO NOT OPEN the attachment. Instead, report the email as phishing (from within the message, click on the stack of three dots to the right of the REPLY button and select "Report phishing") to alert the Gmail Team for analysis and filtering.

This is a good reminder to always check that the email sender’s name matches the sender's email address before opening any file attachment or clicking on any weblinks.

Harrick Plasma is currently working on addressing this problem.
