Default Phishing email used in serious RSA attack surfaces

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/08...k_email_found/

Quote:
The theft of secret data related to RSA's SecurID tokens used by 40 million employees to access sensitive networks likely started with a 13-word email, evidence uncovered through a researcher's dogged sleuthing suggests.

“I forward this file to you for review,” the unsigned email, sent to four employees of RSA's parent company EMC, stated. “Please open and view it.”

That just doesn't make sense.
"Oh a file that I don't know its origin. It's asking me to download the file and open it. Ok then".
Do people not have common sense/training?
:/
