biohazardEverybody uses at least one or more enterprise file sharing and sync (EFSS) consumer app, at least now and then. These include Dropbox, Angry Birds, Facebook, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, WhatsApp, Twitter, Skype or SugarSync. In fact, a lot of people use most of them for a combination of personal and business purposes.

The real tip off is that I am not using ANY version of Microsoft Windows — I use Linux. It is a Skype message intended to trick you into downloading malware by claiming that it has found malware and your computer needs immediate (read that — “without thinking’) attention.
