Cyber Phishing Warning From Steve Giordano of TeamLogic IT

Steve Giordano with TeamLogic IT shares the following:

Cyber criminals are using a Docu Sign scam in a phishing email. This is what we are now seeing

  • A business associate of yours has their email hacked and the hacker gets the
    associates contact list and perhaps sees correspondence with you and/or your company
  • You receive an email from the person that was hacked, stating they have sent you documents using Docu Sign.
  • There is a link for you to click and register with Docu Sign so you can retrieve and sign the documents
  • The link takes you to a new page where you are asked to provide information including your email address and password
  • If you provide the information, the hacker now has your info and has access to your email and perhaps other applications.

Things to look for
  • The email may be from a trusted source but were you expecting the email ?
  • Does the senders name match the senders true email address?
  • Place your mouse of the link but do not click on the click. When you do this, the URL should then be visible in a small pop up window. In the situation I reference, the URL of the link was the following - http://skinnyindo.com/^$%&^*#^#$^&*^&(@*@#&@^(&#^*&@#^#^
  • In this case, skinnyindo.com does not exist and the URL is suspect


Be cautious if you receive any emails regarding Docu Sign.
