August 3, 2018 — Kapersky Labs have found a massive spear phishing campaign.
Robert Capps, VP at NuData, comments on a report issued yesterday by Verdict, disclosing that a new highly targeted phishing campaign has been focusing on sending emails to employees of industrial, manufacturing, and oil and gas companies. Generally, this campaign has set out to get victims to download malware to collect PII. So far an estimated 400 companies have been impacted.
No matter how much cybersecurity solutions advance, the human element remains the main vulnerability and often it’s simply because people are trying to be thorough and perform their work duties to the best of their abilities.
