Alston & Bird is aware of an email spoof that is impersonating the domain name of several large law firms, including our own.
The spoof involves an email falsely purporting to be from Alston & Bird or another law firm and describing a fictitious court appearance. If you received such an email, please be aware that it did not come from our firm. Also, note that the email may contain a link to a computer virus.
Given the apparent scope and targets of this scheme, we are making a point to inform our readership and clients of its existence and emphasize that the scheme was not the result of any compromise to the security of our systems.
