New fax message (2022-09-22)
OverviewThreat actors collecting e-mail credentials
In this case, the phishing e-mail lures a potential victim with a fake fax message notice.
Instead of having to click on a link, the user is lured to open an attachment which contains the phishing form.
When opening it, the user is presented a fake login where they have to enter their e-mail credentials in order to view the fake fax message.
Finally, after having entered their credentials and clicked on View Document, they are redirected to the Excel Online page in Chrome Web Store.
PreventionIf you are uncertain about the authenticity of an email, do not hesitate to contact the entity that seems to have sent you the email using a safe communication manner, using the phone for example (no phone number from the untrusted email must be used in order to verify the authenticity).
If you are working for the Luxembourgish government or are using any of the GOVCERT.LU services, it is important to forward phishing emails to us (using Reporting an incident or the Outlook button). This will allow us to take down phishing websites and protect members of our constituency.
