Infected PDFs

I know we should all be smart enough to not open unknown attachments.

I also know how ignorant CSR's and salesmen can be. Watch out for these.

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

This happened at my old shop. One week into my 2-weeks-notice before moving to my current shop, everyone in the sales/accounting departments were getting these. I was also the IT guy so I spent my last week cleaning up machines. That stuff is seriously hard to clear.

If there's anything that currently can't, someone will find a way.
