SECURITY ALERT: Guard Against Holiday Season Scams

As the holiday season approaches, online retailers, like Amazon, often witness increased traffic. Unfortunately, this surge also attracts cybercriminals. Beware of phishing scams resembling official notifications from online platforms.

Currently, there’s a notable uptick in phishing emails with PDF attachments affecting users of various email services, especially in regions with heightened online retail activity. Cybercriminals mimic support teams, using tactics similar to the recent Amazon-themed phishing scams. Users are tricked into believing their accounts face issues, such as billing errors, and are prompted to click on a link to update information.

These malicious emails are adept at disguising harmful links through URL shorteners, making detection challenging. Clicking on these links may lead to fake websites designed to harvest login credentials or credit card details. Additionally, attached PDF files may contain malware, posing security risks upon download.
