Just got this notification at work:

"Question all emails originating from WDFW (Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife), even if you know the sender. WDFW has informed us that they have been infected by a viscous cyber attack that is actively affecting their email. Malicious emails are being sent from known WDFW employees, containing a malicious attachment. The WDFW Cyber Security team is aggressively working to combat this malicious attack and is asking all party's to be very cautious when opening emails until the all clear is given."
