New abuse of Zoom platform against users of Microsoft Office 365

10. July 2020

The National CERT wishes to warn the users of Microsoft Office 365 of a possible new phishing campaign where attackers try to get hold of the users’ Office 365 account login credentials.

The phishing message features fake notification about the Zoom communication platform account being taken down, with a link redirecting the user to a fake Microsoft login page. Based on the latest research, similar phishing messages appear to have reached over 50,000 email addresses so far. Taking over the credentials enables the attackers to access and abuse all the sensitive information stored in these accounts.
