Between you, me and that dodgy-looking USB: A little bit of paranoia never hurt anyone

My company was recently acquired.

I was given a new email address and a new web-based email account <my_name>@BIGCORP.COM

The *very first* email in my new inbox, was titled "Mandatory Security Training!" and came with a link, which I stupidly clicked and entered my newly provided credentials, only to be informed that this had been a phishing email from their "IT security team" and that I had failed.

So, like a good boy, I went to change my password.

"Password cannot be changed because you have had this one for less than 7 days"
