Part of safely working from home is to be aware of these types of approaches, and alerting your IT staff to these before you click to open them. Do not belief emails appearing to come from recognized authorities, like the CDC, or event your own company or IT department. Be suspicious and stay safe.
- Suspicious action number 1. The first highlighted line shows that this originated as comment form spam from my own website.
- Suspicious action number two. The email address “phillip [AT] zigmia.com. Zigmia is not an email domain of the company EnigmaSoft, but it is similar in appearance.
- Suspicious action number 3. Phillip claims to be from EnigmaSoft, but doesn’ have an email address on the EnigmaSoft email domain.
- Suspicious action number four. The download link for the SpyHunter software is located on a website visit-our.site. This is a .site domain, and again not a legitimate SpyHunter or EnigmaSoft domain name. The legitimate download address is https://www.enigmasoftware.com/products/spyhunter/
- The last highlighted suspicious act is again that this email was generated using the contact form on my own website. Legitimate marketing email would come from an email domain not held by me.
As we send our coworkers and employees home, they need to be vigilant for these types of emails. VirusTotal unfortunately has not flagged the visit-our.site domain yet, which means this is a fresh phish indeed. I will be resubmitting this site for the next few days to see if the situation changes.Share
