Phishing attack

In our previous article on Phishing attacks, we took you through the process of identifying the red flags of a Phishing attack and how to make sure you don’t fall for the scam.

Whereas, that article focused on the process of a phishing attack itself, this article will focus on a new ransomware created by “white-hat hackers” called Ransom Cloud 0365.

This new attack uses phishing attacks to steal your email login credentials and release ransomware onto your account. This will then encrypt all your emails until a ransom is paid.

Read on…… to find out how they target you and the provisions you can put in place.

Would you or your staff fall for this?

Phishing email

A phishing attack email was sent to our client recently, fortunately they identified it for what it was… an attempt to download malware onto their systems.

Would you be able to recognise the threat?

Everybody has received the junk email advising that they are a winner of $10,000,000 and to click a link to receive the payment, I’m sure we can agree that most of us would be wary and distrustful of an obvious hoax like this.

However, attackers are becoming sneakier with how they approach trying to trick people into believing a phishing email is legitimate.

Are you aware that under the GDPR, if your staff member was to fall for a phishing email/fake link or download then you have to report it as a breach?

Do you really want to receive a fine for something so easily managed? Staff training will allow them to be able to identify the warning signs and either delete the email or consult their IT.

Why? Because technology is now used for anything from banking, to shopping, to checking and sending emails. Whilst making things easier, it also means we are easier to target by hackers to snatch details and gain access to all your accounts.

Here are some tips about Account security:
