WATCH: Phishing email brandjacks not 1, but 3 companies

Earlier this week, MailGuard detected a phishing email scam brandjacking Egnyte, WeTransfer as well as Office 365.

 

This scam was a particularly well-executed one, and not solely because cybercriminals included high-quality graphical elements such as the companies' logos and branding to make the scam look as legitimate as possible. In addition to that, they leveraged on recipients' sense of curiousity and intrigue, by attaching a link containing 'important' legal documents. 

Watch the full scam below:

MailGuard urges all email users to be vigilant when clicking on any links in emails, no matter how important they may seem to be.
