Awareness tip: Misleading shortcut

Are you sure it is a word document?

A file may appear safe because it has a recognizable icon and extension, such as the familiar Word icon with the ‘.docx’ extension.

However, this does not guarantee the user that the file is safe! The type of the file must also always be checked. In some cases, the type is a ‘shortcut’, a shortcut, to a potentially malicious file.

In this way the user can still be hacked with a file that appears safe at first glance!
