Re: The theme
"IF YOU DON'T NEED IT, DON'T READ IT, DELETE IT" Wise words to live by.

The reason that server side attacks have transitioned to the minority and client side attacks are now the majority is because people's curiousity is peaked. Plus since email needs to remain open for business it will commonly subvert many of the security layers.

User Awareness is a big piece and constant testing will go a long way. Sites like PhishMe and KnowBe offer integrated services to perfrom.

The theme
Always seems to be an impersonation attack through email and infected documents.  User education would almost eradicate a huge potion of malware.  BUT people are curious and that killed the cat.  They want to see what an infected something ACTUALLY DOES.  I have seen that crazy desire up close.  Or they just want to see if the Liberty Wine company really does owe then $315.62 as per the attached invoice.  (Google that one).  My rule for email is simple and I encourage all to pass it on: IF YOU DON'T NEED IT, DON'T READ IT, DELETE IT
