Shark Tank judge loses $400,000 in a phishing scam—but her accounts are still at risk. Securely manage passwords now with LogMeOnce Password Manager and keep hackers away with Password SHOCK©.

WASHINGTON, C.C., Mars 3, 2020—In light of the well-publicized phishing scam that recently ensnared popular Shark Tank judge Barbara Corcoran, LogMeOnce, le leader du marché distinctif de l'authentification sans mot de passe, offre des conseils en temps opportun et des remèdes essentiels sur la façon d'éviter de devenir victime de pirates.

Problème: Un hacker ou un groupe de hackers ont déjà tenté de disparaître avec Corcoran $400,000. Cette attaque par phishing n'a pas eu lieu du jour au lendemain. Le pirate a imité l'adresse e-mail d'un assistant et a simplement changé une lettre pour la rendre réelle. Apparemment, le pirate connaissait les adresses e-mail de l'assistant et du comptable, donc les chances sont que ces adresses et peut-être même leurs mots de passe ont déjà été exposés lors d'une précédente violation de données et exposés dans des bases de données Web sombres. C’est un scénario effrayant de penser que le pirate pourrait être déjà à l’intérieur du réseau ou du compte de ces individus, errant alentour, et s'est familiarisé avec les procédures internes du bureau et les processus comptables, y compris la façon dont les factures sont approuvées pour le paiement.

Solution: To avoid similar scams, LogMeOnce advises against using public email accounts to conduct any kind of financial activity, whether personal or for business. By using your own business domain, you will eliminate a hacker’s ability to create/imitate email addresses without your approval. To seal off your accounts from such hacking attempts, you can throw a security blanket over them and establish simple but comprehensive security defensive layers. Seriously increase password strength for all team members, use Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), monitor dark web for data breaches, and start using Password-Less Login.

Produit: Switch to a private email system and start using your own business domain (exemple: Barbara@Corcoran.com) rather than using a free/public email service. Add proven security from reputable vendors to protect your accounts and credentials. The LogMeOnce management team has invented numerous award-winning security products since 1995. LogMeOnce provides a broad portfolio of security products including its popular password manager, Identité Protection contre le vol, Surveillance noire Web, and Cloud Encrypter.

Malheureusement, Corcoran fell victim to a phishing scam that could have been prevented with better protection and defensiveness around her accounts and those of her business. Her bookkeeper erroneously sent nearly $400,000 to someone who had sent emails that seemed to come from one of Corcoran’s assistants—but in fact was a hacker.

“Getting hacked or compromised by a scam is a horrible experience, whether you lose a ton of money or your credibility takes a hit. The LogMeOnce Password Manager and Identity Theft Protection tools would have easily prevented such vulnerabilities and such extensive and expensive damage,», Affirme Kevin Shahbazi, PDG de LogMeOnce. “Additionally, our patented LogMeOnce Mugshot would have helped to collect the hacker’s metadata, exposing unauthorized access attempts before the hack occurred. Prevention involves connecting the dots and exposing the source of the scam.”
