Scam Of The Week: Fake Printer Attachment Phishing Attack

Heads up! The bad guys have come up with a new ransomware phishing attack that tricks users into opening what appears to be a document scanned from an internal printer. The printer/scanner model that these bad guys are spoofing is called a Konica Minolta C224e, and it is one of the most popular in businesses worldwide.

The phishing attack has an attachment on the email, disguised as a printer output. This is deceitful due to the fact that many employees scan original documents on their company scanner/printer and email those documents to themselves and others as a standard practice.

This attack could be easily mistaken as one of these types of emails.

Always remember: “When in doubt, throw it out!”
