Cyber-Security Advisory: Emails Leading to Fake Websites

Written by Publisher on . Posted in IT Advisory

Three emails have recently been flagged by administrators of the Philippine government email system due to the suspicious nature of their content. This messages could prove harmful to email users when the payload attachments and links are activated. These emails have bypassed the spam filter of some email programs.


One is a phishing attack coming from an unknown sender with email address Jessica <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>; whose email message has the subject line "quota exceeded" has been targeting government email accounts in the country. Accordingly, the said attack draws the attention of the recipients wherein email users are directed to a fake website and asks for the recipients to enter their private information. Another email coming from someone using the handle System Administrator <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>; with subject line "babala" has the same modus operandi.

The third is a message from an unknown sender with the handle Christina Mcelhone <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>; having a subject line "Job Application". Accordingly, said message convinces users that they are handling "secure" documents to trick them into enabling macros after opening malicious PDF/Word documents. Users are instead kicking off a download process that will likely result in the installation of a ransomware or a banker trojan.

If emails are received from these addresses or from any suspicious senders, press the REPORT IT AS SPAM button in your email programs to stop it from spreading further.
