Phishing scam: Project Update projectDOCS.pdf

An unknown number of users have received a phishing scam message:

From: a known contact of a user
Subject: Project Update
With an attachment entitled: projectDOCS.pdf

This will most likely appear to have been sent by one of your email contacts. Opening the PDF requests your login details and it states that the .PDF is safe and can be accessed via your email address and password.

Best practice is to delete the email entirely. Please do not open or download the attachment if you have received this message to your inbox as you may be introducing a security threat to your device.
