The US Postal Service warned employees and contractors to be demonstrate increased cybersecurity vigilance amid escalating tensions in the Middle East.

"Email spearphishing campaigns targeting U.S. government agencies are intensifying, the Postal Service Corporate Information Security Office reports. 

"Cyberthreat actors are aggressively attempting to steal sensitive information, including account credentials and financial information, using targeted information campaigns."

Slow down, don't click, and be skeptical was some of the advice it offered.

The USPS warning explained that attackers disguise themselves as a trustworthy entity to acquire sensitive information, often by acquiring the victim's personal details, such as the names of their friends, hometown, employer, locations they frequent, and recent online purchases.

It's good advice no matter who you are or who you work for, you can find the full announcement on the USPS.com website in the Link blog for employees.
