MailGuard has detected a new phishing scam using MYOB branding to deceive victims into giving up their Microsoft login data on a phishing site (shown in the screenshot above).
This scam uses a fake MYOB notification email (shown below) which advises the recipient “to view your remittance advice you are required to login with your correct email password.”
The displayed “view remittance” link points to the phishing page where the victim’s login credentials are captured by the scammers.
The display name shown in this scam message is “Accounts” and the sending address is “email@example.com”

#ZERODAY #FASTBREAK Well-formatted HTML email #brandjacks @MYOB and links to a #phishing site. None of the domains look registered for the spam run and all appear to be existing compromised accounts.
