    TrendLabsSM engineers are currently monitoring an in-the-wild attack that highlights the underrated and often-ignored risk of allowing employees to check their personal email accounts at work.

    Yesterday, one of our colleagues in Taiwan received an email message that spurred what looks like a targeted attack. Unlike other email-based attacks that require users to open the message and to click an embedded link or to download and execute an attachment, this attack’s execution merely requires users to preview the message in their browsers.

    The following is a screenshot of the email inbox’s page:

    The message in the email above roughly translates to the following:

    Subject: Have you ever logged in Facebook from unknown location?
