PayPal Phishing Email

An email claiming to be from PayPal is advising the recipient that their PayPal Account has been limited. To rectify the problem the email asks you to log in to your PayPal account.

The link leads to a phishing page, designed to steal your PayPal credentials. If you sign into the page your credentials (PayPal account username and password) are sent to the attacker. The attacker can then use you PayPal account to make purchases on the internet.

 

Telstra Phishing Email

Be wary of a Telstra phishing email doing the rounds. The email advises the recipient that their latest Telstra bill is available to download. Upon clicking the link you will be presented with a zip file containing a malicious javascript file. This javascript file, when run, will download a Trojan onto your PC.  A Trojan allows an attacker to remotely access your PC. This allows an attacker to possibly view what you are doing, steal passwords, or install other malware, such as ransomware onto your PC.
