We became aware of a new phishing campaign that aims to extract money in form of iTunes gift cards.
The hacker gathers information that is publicly accessible and then tries to create a realistically looking message, using an email address similar to the official one and adding a signature in the end. The message is sent to colleagues of the impersonated user, claiming that the user is in a meeting, unable to use the phone and urgently needs an iTunes gift card.
This message contains urgent tone and bad grammar.
If you receive this email, do not reply to the email, share it with the IT Service Desk and then delete the email.
