Alert: Fake Suncorp ‘Insurance Documents’ Email Scam

Posted by Emmanuel Marshall on 08 January 2018 11:34:52 AEDT

Be on the lookout for this email scam today using fake ‘Suncorp’ branding. The email was detected by MailGuard this morning and is currently being sent out in large numbers.

The message shows the sender addresses ‘SunCorp Insurance’ or ‘Health Insurance,’ but the emails actually originate from a compromised MailChimp account.

As you can see from the screenshot (above) this email asks the recipient to download ‘insurance documents’ and has a link pointing to an archived JavaScript file. JavaScript files used in scams of this sort can contain malware such as trojans, keystroke loggers and ransomware.

At the time of detection MailGuard was the only security provider detecting these malicious emails - please be cautious and check your inbox to make sure you are not targeted by this scam.
