WASHINGTON, D.C., maart 3, 2020—In light of the well-publicized phishing scam that recently ensnared popular Shark Tank judge Barbara Corcoran, LogMeOnce, de onderscheidende marktleider in zonder wachtwoord authenticatie, is het aanbieden tijdig advies en kritische remedies over hoe om slachtoffer te worden van hackers te vermijden.

Probleem: Een hacker of een groep hackers hebben al geprobeerd om te verdwijnen met Corcoran's $400,000. Deze phishing scam aanval niet over een nacht ijs. De hacker nagebootst e-mailadres van een assistent en gewoon een letter veranderd zodat het lijkt echt. Blijkbaar, de hacker wist van de assistent en e-mailadressen van een accountant, dus de kans is die adressen en mogelijk zelfs hun wachtwoorden waren al belicht door een eerdere data-inbreuk en blootgesteld in donkere webdatabases. Het is een enge scenario om te denken dat de hacker al binnen het netwerk of te houden met deze individuen kunnen zijn, rondzwerven, en werd bekend met interne office procedures en boekhoudkundige processen, inclusief de wijze waarop facturen worden goedgekeurd voor de betaling.

Oplossing: 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.

Product: Switch to a private email system and start using your own business domain (voorbeeld: 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, Identity Theft Protection, Dark Web Monitoring, and Cloud Encrypter.

helaas, 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,” says Kevin Shahbazi, CEO van 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.”
