Home 5 Blog 5 Scam alert: Massive phishing scam targets inboxes

Phishing scams are becoming more and more common nowadays. In fact, we almost see a new one every day, with the scams ranging from very obvious to cleverly executed.

As with the other prominent phishing attacks we have reported on the past, this set of fraudulent emails sent fake invoices to unsuspecting users. Once the users click through the links to view the invoices, they would be redirected to a SharePoint site where an automatic download for a malicious zip file will be triggered. If they do download the file, it will incorporate a compromised Java script into their computer. Then, their personal information would be ripe for picking for the scammers.
