A little phishing knowledge may be a dangerous thing

We had someone like you at a company where I worked a year or two ago ... he got a phishing email - decided to investigte a bit and then did a "forward to all" on the message along with a comment "if you get an email like this delete it as I've checked and the attachment contains <list of viruses>".

Needless to say, this was followed up shortly by an reply-to-all from IT department which gave an item by item list of the corporate IT security rules that he had broken (not reporting suspisious emails to IT, opening suspisious attachements, emailing viruses, etc, etc)
