Estimados, sigue abajo un correo que llegó al CMat y que fue entregado a 
las cuentas de e-mail locales.

Esto es SPAM y no lo deben tener en cuenta; más precisamente, se trata 
de una técnica conocida como "Phishing" - 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phishing - y suele ser muy común en estos 
dias para robar información privada de usuarios de internet.

Aprovecho la situación para aclarar que en ningún momento Sebastián o yo 
pediremos este tipo de información (tanto por mail o como 
personalmente). No hay razón por la cual un administrador de sistemas 
tenga que conocer la contraseña de los usuarios. Este tipo de 
información es privada y personal.

Estamos a la orden para aclarar cualquier otra duda.
