New Email Ransomware Threat
OK, here is something new and really scary.
There is a new type of ransomware coming which will encrypt your Exchange email and all its attachments, contacts and calendars. This new strain uses a smart social engineering tactic to trick the user to give the bad guys access to their cloud email account, with the ruse of a “new Microsoft anti-spam service”.
Once your employee clicks “accept” to use this service, it’s game over: all email and attachments are encrypted real-time!
Once the email account is destroyed, there is no way of recovering the data since it is instantly destroyed on the Exchange server as well.
Be extremely careful if you ever are asked to enter your email address and password anywhere!
Once you give it away, there is no turning back and all your information will be permanently destroyed.
Keep you guard up and trust nothing.
