Malware scam: fake Ezi Office Supplies invoice

MailGuard has intercepted a new criminal-intent email that is exploiting Ezi Office Supplies branding.

You can see in the screenshot above that this scam message is well formatted and looks like a legitimate invoice notification.

The ‘view bill’ link in the message takes scam victims to a zipped file on the actual Ezi Office Supplies website - eziofficesupplies.com.au - which contains JavaScript malware.

The screenshot above shows that the sender address of this scam message is also on the eziofficesupplies.com.au domain. The fact that the criminals behind this scam are using the eziofficesupplies.com.au domain indicates that Ezi Office Supplies may have been compromised by hackers.

On Feb 20 Ezi Office Supplies went on social media to warn their customers that they had been having problems with their email system. A post on the company’s Facebook feed stated 'If you have received an email from us - digitalenquiries please delete as it is a spam. Apologies if received already. Thank you.'

MailGuard has protected our customer’s inboxes from this malware attack, but this message will be showing up in unprotected inboxes today, so if you receive an email from Ezi Office Supplies, proceed with extreme caution.


One Email

If your company is using an integrated productivity platform like Office 365, then you already know the benefits of cloud-based technology. Doing business online opens up opportunities for collaboration on an unprecedented level, but with that opportunity comes significant risk. Cybercriminals utilise sophisticated AI technology to monitor business and social networks and they exploit the data they collect to infiltrate organisations. All criminals need to break into your business is a cleverly worded email; if they can trick one person in your company into clicking on a malicious link they can gain access to your data.

For a few dollars per staff member per month, you can protect your business with MailGuard's predictive email security.
