There is a very realistic spoofed phishing email making the rounds that looks so close the the real Microsoft alert email, as to be almost undetectable. They even spoof the legitimate sender address of “firstname.lastname@example.org”. So even if you are looking for signs of chicanery, it will be difficult for most users to tell it is fake. See an example below.
Clicking on the “Review recent activity” button will take you to a fake Microsoft login page. Fortunately, the web address in the address bar is obviously fake. But entering your user name and password will give the attacker what they came for. They would be able to take over your Outlook email, Office365 account, Skype account, and any other attached Microsoft services.
So be on the lookout for these impostors.Share
