WASHINGTON, DC, mars 3, 2020—In light of the well-publicized phishing scam that recently ensnared popular Shark Tank judge Barbara Corcoran, LogMeOnce, den karakteristiske markedsleder i passord mindre autentisering, tilbyr betimelig råd og kritiske løsninger på hvordan du kan unngå å falle offer for hackere.
Problem: En hacker eller gruppe hackere har allerede prøvd å forsvinne med Corcoran $400,000. Dette phishing scam angrepet skjedde ikke over natten. Hackeren imiterte en assistent e-postadresse og bare endret en bokstav for å gjøre det ser ekte. Tilsynelatende, hacker visste assistentens og en regnskapsfører e-postadresser, så sjansene er disse adressene og muligens til og med sine passord ble allerede eksponert gjennom en tidligere datainnbrudd og eksponert i mørke web-databaser. Det er en skremmende scenario å tenke på at hacker kan ha vært allerede inne i disse individers nettverk eller konto, streifer rundt, og ble kjent med interne kontor prosedyrer og regnskapsprosesser, inkludert hvordan fakturaer er godkjent for utbetaling.
Løsning: 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.

dessverre, 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.
