The above link is based on a more complete article I quote from below:

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is alerting all federally insured credit unions about a fraudulent Letter to Credit Unions . . . accompanied by two compact discs (CDs). The subject . . . is a purported NCUA FRAUD Alert . . advis[ing] credit unions to review training material (contained on the CDs). DOING SO COULD RESULT IN A POSSIBLE SECURITY BREACH TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM, . . .

One would think that credit unions, banks, ect. would have a computer, (stand alone), hooked to nothing to test such things before putting them on the main computer system. Any body can make C/D's and mail them to who ever.
