Office 365 credential SCAM

Scammers Trying to Steal Office 365 Credentials with Fake Voice Mail Messages

(October 30 & 31, 2019)

Researchers at McAfee have detected a phishing campaign that uses voicemail messages to try to trick recipients into disclosing their Office365 account access credentials. Targeted individuals received email messages telling them they had missed a phone call and asking them to log into their Office365 account to retrieve the message.

Editor’s Note

This is a good time to remind users of legitimate password recovery options to help them make good choices for these sorts of emails. Also make sure that your email service anti-phishing and anti-malware services are enabled to block or quarantine these types of attachments.
