A friend that works in the banking industry, after the bank got hacked last year, was telling us how the next day the everyone in the bank was passing around a excel spread sheet via email with a list of the hacked accounts, and telling everyone to open them up. Everyone in the office was opening them up.

Chilean companies probably don't fall prey to more spearfishing attacks, because they are too complex for the average computer illiterate Chilean employee to fall for.
