Another malicious phishing mail

A user had her gmail account compromised and it was used to send out a malicious phishing mail. The URL appeared to go to Google Drive, but really went to a phishing site. It’s blocked at ANL, but obviously not from offsite. If you visited that URL and entered any information, please let us know ASAP so we can take appropriate action.

A reminder that you should double check any URL you visit to make sure the URL you expect to be at is what you see in the address bar of your browser. And, as always, be suspicious of unsolicited mails directing you to visit a link.

The phishing mail is quoted below.
