More stinky phish

Email addresses from the FY 2012-2013 Form 470 are being targeted with a slick phishing attack.  It is a very realistic counterfeit notification from Dunn & Bradstreet that a complaint has been filed against you.  The complaint is in a ZIP archive.  Don't open the ZIP file.

I wouldn't trust anything from D&B, anyway, so I wasn't at risk, but it's yet another example of E-Rate applicants being put at risk because contact information on the Form 470 is published.

The FCC should not publish contact info from the Form 470; not email addresses, and not phone numbers.
