Phishing Campaign Leads Users to Site Disguised as Email Scanner

State of Security

A phishing campaign tricked users into visiting a website that masqueraded as an email scanner in an effort to steal their account credentials.

Kaspersky Lab found that the campaign began with a scam email containing a fake virus alert.

This email claimed to originate from an organization’s “Email Security Team,” but it actually originated from a Hotmail account.

In an attempt to intimidate the recipient, the email message used a “Virus Alert” heading followed by three exclamation points.
