Just an FYI for those who use ADP payroll services:
Beginning yesterday, certain ADP clients and other parties started receiving fraudulent e-mails that appear to be sent from ADP. They were not.
If you receive these e-mails DO NOT OPEN, FORWARD, LAUNCH OR RESPOND TO THEM. IMMEDIATELY DELETE THEM. The e-mails and their attachments are malicious and could harm your computer. We believe they are attempting to compromise your data.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Here is what you should be on the lookout for:
- The “from:” address in these e-mails may have been spoofed to look like it is coming from ADP such as “firstname.lastname@example.org ” or “email@example.com”.
- The subject line may read: “Agreement Update for [Your Company Name (Case id: ______)]” or “Complaint Update for [Company Name (Case id. #)]”.
- The e-mail may have an attachment named either Agreement.rtf or Agree.rtf or may instruct you to “download a copy of your complaint.”
- These attacks are sophisticated and you may receive other fraudulent e-mails. Please be careful not to open any suspicious attachments or to download any files.
ADP will continually update the information on its website to help you identify and avoid problems from these suspicious e-mails. You will be able to visit http://www.adp.com/about_fraudulentemail.asp for the latest information.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
If you received one of these suspicious e-mails do not open the attachment and do not provide any information of any kind. Delete the e-mail and any attachment immediately.
WHAT IS ADP DOING ABOUT THIS:
ADP’s security team is working with law enforcement as well as outside experts to identify those responsible for this attack. If we identify any further steps needed to protect your computer, ADP will immediately post this information on our website.
We appreciate your understanding as we work with law enforcement and you to resolve this matter.
