Microsoft Office 365 Users at Risk
“This attack tries to steal your Microsoft® Office 365® (O365) login credentials”
so that criminals can access anything you have stored in O365. This could include your email, OneDrive files, and anything you’ve put in the cloud. An attacker sends a fraudulent email that contains links to an authentic-looking (but fake) O365 login page designed to steal your credentials.
What do I look for?
This is one example of the emails. There are many variations.
- Evaluate Sender -Do you think outlook.noticeros.com is a legitimate sender? Look for small details that seem off.
- Consider Context- Why would you get this email? Did you ask to close your account? At work wouldn’t your IT team handle this, not you? If the request seems odd, use caution
- Don’t Panic Don’t legitimate emails offer a reasonable time frame to confirm account changes?
- Look at Links -When you hover over links, shouldn’t the URL match what you expect or what’s in the email? This link takes you to roadmapbonaire.com. Does that sound like a real O365 login page?
How do I protect myself?
If you get an email asking you to log into O365
- Looks legitimate: Call or send an instant message to your IT team, security team, or even your boss to verify the email.
- Looks Suspicious: Report it to the appropriate people in your company.
