I almost got burned.... from a great place to hide malware.

I get a lot of messages that I'm getting a FEDEX, USPS, or UPS package. The tracking emails typically provide nothing but a link. I clicked today, and it asked me if I wanted to open.... OH! Wait.... a Word.DOC?? Pass....

Instead of a link, it was an attachment that appeared to be a link, instead. (I'm using web browser Gmail). I haven't seen many of these... yet.... and so I wasn't on-guard. Those of us that are "smart", are not immune to getting caught when we are not paying attention, tired, or expecting something already. Just a good reminder for me.
