been facing a rise in phishing emails starting in November of 2017 that allow an attacker to
take remote control of a victim’s computer. When opened the emails would install one of two types
of legitimate remote administration=software such as TeamViewer The attacker would then have access to countless
financial documents or access to financial software on the employees computer and in turn commit financial fraud
and send themselves payments. What is more worrying is all of these attacks targeted employees by
their names and referenced work they were doing, suggesting some reconnaissance had been done
prior to carrying out the scam. For more information and how to protect your
