#Phishing - Microsoft Teams

 #Cybercrime - beware of spoofed Microsoft Teams emails. Similar to the recent spate of Dropbox phishing that appear to be form a colleague sending a file via Dropbox, these emails look like a notification from a colleague via Teams and request the recipient to log in via the supplied link to see the message. The link/s in the message goto a #phishing page made to look like a Microsoft Teams log in page. These phishing emails are designed to obtain Microsoft log in credentials.

** What can you do? **

  • All users of technology need to remain vigilant against cybercrime.
  • When you receive an email with a link to a log in page, consider NOT clicking that link, instead goto the page yourself with a URL you know/find yourself.
  • If you have inadvertently been tricked by phishing, change your password/s immediately.
