    From 'SecurityNewsDaily'; 57 out of some 530 employees clicked on a link in the email 'campaign', according to Thomas Zacharia, ORNL deputy lab director. link

    Quite a staggering percentage, if over 10% of employees (of a hush-hush US lab) who received the email, have been seriously duped by 'PLA & Associates Co.' (some wild speculation of course regarding the PLA :))
