We must apply the utmost caution with everything that comes to our email, since it often has malicious intentions. Now we have to be careful with the email that tries to share a confidential document, because it is dangerous. Of course, this is a serious issue, which can deceive more than one.
Email makes us curious as we make sure that someone wants to share a confidential document with us. Of course, we should be suspicious from the first moment: we are not told who actually shares that document, nor is it indicated which service is used to do so. This is easy for an expert user to figure out, but a less experienced user might be confused.
If we use the link to access the "confidential document" we will be robbed of our login credentials So this is a security issue, and email filtering systems do not seem to be detecting this attack. Let's hope that soon it will begin to be correctly classified as a threat to users.
Here you have a screenshot of this email that pretends to share a confidential document but actually has malicious intent:
Many dangers on the Internet
Just yesterday we heard about an email that impersonates Correos, and recently also about the danger of theft of Steam accounts. So our advice is to be wary of any mail that comes your way If you don't expect to receive it, it's best to assume it's dangerous. If we want to make sure, we must enter the web that indicates us externally, never use a link from the email itself, which can be false.

So be careful with the email that pretends to share a confidential documentl, because it is not trustworthy. To this day, we even find scams on WhatsApp, so we should never access links that pass us by, much less enter sensitive information on those pages.
