Cyber-criminals Target Remote Workers
Business needs have been changing in front of our eyes with the implementation of remote working conditions to help flatten the curve during a global pandemic, and cyber-criminals are taking notice.
In a recent story, Info-security published in May that cyber-criminals are now impersonating top brands to target remote workers. With new needs and online business demands, Google file sharing and storage websites are being used in 65% of nearly 100,000 form-based attacks according to a recent study.
Cyber-criminals are exploiting these tactics and using Google-branded sites like storage.googleapis.com, docs.google.com, storage.cloud.google.com, and drive.google.com to trick remote workers into sharing login credentials.
And the use of brand impersonation is increasing. Other form-based sites used by attackers included sendgrid.net (10%), mailchimp.com (4%) and formcrafts.com (2%).
All businesses must protect data and information with an IT partner that can help thwart data security tricks from the outside.
