phishing defines
Attachments are one tool phishers use to attack us. The text in the email may refer to an attached picture or document when they have actually attached a file that can cause harm.

Before you open an attachment, look with an eagle eye at the very last part of the file name after the dot. This is called the file extension and it tells us what kind of file it is. If you don't recognize the extension, look it up on the web. (search: file extensions)
