Phishing alert: See a tricky password-stealing scam in action

  • Phishing scams usually try to get you to their malicious payload as quickly as possible, so when security researchers discovered a new type of campaign featuring multiple steps and downloads, they knew they had to dive deeper.
  • As it turns out, this new campaign is just as dangerous as classic phishing schemes — and might even have an easier time making it to your inbox.
  • With phishing campaigns, you’re only as vulnerable as you are naive. If you’re wise to the tricks and skeptical about anything coming into your inbox, you won’t fall victim to one of these scams.
