Getting ready to return to the office? Excited about it? Stressed? Hackers are counting on it.
As employees have worked from home over the last nine months, due to the coronavirus pandemic, many are excited (and some fearful) to return to their place of business. Unfortunately, in a new phishing attack, bad actors are exploiting your feelings of stress or excitement about returning to the office.
The phishing email resembles something that your human resources department might send about returning to the office. Attached to the email is an HTML file that includes your name in the file name. If you download and open this attachment, you’ll be taken to a file that is hosted on the file-sharing site, Microsoft SharePoint. According to the document, you must acknowledge the return to office policy by providing your username and password. If you enter your credentials here, the information will be sent directly to the bad guys and they’ll have the same access to your organization as you do.
According to Knowbe4 here are a few tips to keep you safe!
