Phishing emails and their associated websites often impersonate well-known organizations, brands, businesses, and other familiar subjects to try to trap potential victims. They can spoof banks and financial establishments, hospitals and healthcare groups, and even one's own employer. A series of recent phishing emails examined by INKY targeted people curious or anxious about COVID-19 by impersonating the White House and some in the administration.
As the country grapples with the burgeoning coronavirus pandemic, cybersecurity experts are warning that employees working from home are increasingly being targeted by aggressive cybercriminals trying to capitalize on their unfamiliarity with remote work.
Working from home is the new reality for hundreds of millions of Americans and their companies. That means lots of workers in their studies or kitchen tables are in far more vulnerable cyber environments. And there’s ample evidence the bad guys are out in force.
Looks like cybercriminals have come up with yet another innovative means to distribute malware. Researchers at INKY, which provides tools to combat phishing attacks, have discovered that cybercriminals are now sending emails that come with fake attachments, known as phaxttachments. When recipients click on the attachment they are actually clicking on a URL that takes them to a fake website where they are prompted to give up their credentials.
