New Smishing Campaign Using USPS as Its Disguise

The State of Security

A new SMS-based phishing (“smishing”) campaign is using the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a disguise to target mobile users.

On September 15, SlickRockWeb CEO Eric JN Eliason tweeted out two examples of the operation.
