Tampa Power Squadron

If you were born on or after January 1, 1988 the state of Florida requires you to have taken a NASBLA approved boater safety course to operate a boat or any personal watercraft.

A Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is a courtesy examination of your boat and safety equipment to verify the presence and condition of safety equipment required by both federal and state authorities.

Tampa Power Squadron developed a training simulator which provides a comprehensive and immersive simulated boating experience for our boating class and is easy for other squadrons to make their own.

This is our sister site which is intended to be a place to provide information and resources for boating on Tampa Bay

Well, they're back. The forged email malware and I've been getting flooded with them claiming to be from assorted USPS members, likely you have to. They all mention an attached
invoice or bill in a word or PDF document. At first blush it looks like it came from someone you know but the return address usually shows a totally different address.

The sender is hoping you click on the attachment at which point it will launch malware on your machine which will collect your address book, it will then send new
copies of the malware to everyone in your address book while using the same to forge the sender so it appears to come from you or some random person in your addressbook.

My advice is to always make sure the sender address looks legit. If you have any suspicion do not click on the attachment but just delete if and contact the sender to confirm, do not click reply, remember the address may be bogus. Every time someone clicks that attachment they potentially propagate this to everyone in their address book.

Practice safe computing.
