National Australia Bank (NAB) has once again been impersonated by cybercriminals in a phishing email scam designed to steal users’ confidential data.
As you can see from the screenshots above, cybercriminals have taken great pains to replicate official landing pages from NAB – including incorporating the bank’s branding and logo using high-quality graphical elements in the phishing pages. All this is done to trick users into thinking the scam is legitimate.
MailGuard urges users not to click links or open attachments within emails that:
- Are not addressed to you by name.
- Appear to be from a legitimate company but use poor English or omits personal details that a legitimate sender would include.
- Are from businesses that you were not expecting to hear from, and/or
- Take you to a landing page or website that is not the legitimate URL of the company the email is purporting to be sent from.
One email is all that it takes
All that it takes to devastate your business is a cleverly worded email message that can steal sensitive user credentials or disrupt your business operations. If scammers can trick one person in your company into clicking on a malicious link or attachment, they can gain access to your data or inflict damage on your business.
