Exclamation Safer Computing: 16/06/2016


Phishers are using a malicious JavaScript redirect to steal PayPal credentials from unsuspecting computer users.

The only saving grace with this particular phishing attack is that the phishing page is a HTML page / form that they tell you to open on your computer and not a link to a website.

The advice we always give to NOT open any attachments to emails and definitely do not fill in html form attachments should protect you.

However, once a phisher puts this onto a website with a plausible & believable URL, then all bets are off and it will be almost impossible to detect the phish.

Fortunately, PayPal offers users the ability to enable two-step verification, which will help protect their accounts even in the event someone compromises users' passwords.
It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.
