This afternoon MailGuard intercepted a large batch of criminal-intent emails formatted to look like Bakerdays Quickbooks invoices. (See screenshot, above.)
These fake invoices are well designed, so they would not necessarily look suspicious to recipients based on their appearance. They even have a legitimate looking sender address: andrea[at]bakerdays[dot]com
Of course, if you aren’t doing business with Bakerdays then you really wouldn’t have any reason to click on the ‘view invoice’ button, but curiosity might get the better of you, mightn’t it?
The MailGuard team clicked the link (under protected conditions of course) so they could show you what happens.
No other security companies were detecting this threat when we first intercepted it. There are a lot of these emails going around - the MailGuard system detected thousands - so if you’re not a MailGuard client; please keep an eye out.
