My Online Security has reported of a new phishing scheme, directed at PayPal users. The scam involves misleading users into filling in their login details. The data is recorded, allowing hackers to break into the victim’s account.
The phishing scheme is conducted through spam emails. A bogus notification asks the recipient to enter a certain page on the payment platform. The message provides the link. It leads to the actual PayPal website, but the hackers get access to the information you enter in the login fields.
The best course of action is to check the attachment itself. .EXE attachments are often cited as the source for malware and phishing attacks.
