Companies are currently receiving emails claiming that the recipient has received a new fax document. Employees are prompted to click on a link to make the document visible.
Attention!!!!! This is an attack on the Microsoft account of employees.
These mails seem particularly trustworthy because they use domain names of the affected company in the sender field (“From”). Always remember that Sender names can easily be changed, making it important to verify the sender.
How do you know if it is a scam?
- Check the sender address exactly – not the sender name, but the sender address by moving the mouse over the From field. The name can be changed, the sender address does not coincide with the name.
- Do not enter confidential data, such as passwords, at the link unless you are absolutely sure that you are on the right page. Log in as usual (NOT WITH THE LINK), so you can check whether the claim in the mail is true.
- Get in the habit of questioning content when you receive mail. When did I receive the last “fax document”? If you are unsure, contact their IT department and ask if this mail is genuine.
