Bogus Office 365 email brandjacked; delivers phishing attack

Posted by Akankasha Dewan on 11 October 2018 17:00:40 AEDT

Cybercriminals brandjacked Office 365 and sent bogus emails to recipients on Tuesday afternoon as part of a phishing attack.

The emails, seemingly sent from ‘Messages Portal Centre Messages Portal Centre’ trick recipients into thinking that their account has been put on hold until they ‘confirm activity’.

It encourages users to click on a View ‘Activity’ link that leads to a compromised website.

The website page opens to a fake Office 365 login page. Users are then instructed to enter their password on this page to proceed further.

The scam is a classic example of a phishing attack that cybercriminals launch in a bid to steal confidential passwords from recipients.
