Security Alert for Microsoft Teams Users!

SECURITY ALERT - if you use Microsoft TEAMS you should temporarily avoid using GIFs within TEAMS.

Hackers have discovered a way to embed malicious code within Gifs that circumvent certain areas of Microsoft Teams, allowing the hacker to gather secured information and/or launch malware or other types of computer virus programs.

Until this issue is fully resolved, we encourage anyone using Microsoft Teams to avoid using GIFs.

The article below provides some additional detail and insight into the threat.

If you are concerned you may have experienced a cyber attack, please contact us and we can do a security scan of your device.

Stay cyber safe!
