Picture this: You're cruising through your emails, minding your own business, when suddenly, a message pops up from your colleagues. You think, "Ah, another delightful message from my pals!" But wait... something smells fishy.

Turns out, it's not a friendly hello—it's part of a sneaky scam called "SubdoMailing" made up by hackers to lure you into clicking on shady links or spilling sensitive info. Trust us, it's as pleasant as a surprise visit from your in-laws!

So, what's the catch?

Just like regular phishing attacks, these cybercriminals pose as legit brands. But here's the twist: They're like online detectives, sniffing around the internet for forgotten subdomains of reputable companies. You know, those extra bits in a web address? Like experience.trustedbrand.com. That "experience" part? That's the subdomain.

They find one that's been left to gather dust, still pointing to an external domain that's long gone. Sneaky, right?

Then they swoop in, buy the domain, and set up their trap.

So, you think you're clicking on experience.trustedbrand.com... sike! It leads straight to scamwebsite.com.

These scammers are pumping out five million bogus emails every single day, targeting people in businesses just like yours. There’s nothing that can literally stop these people.

And because these emails seem to be from a legit source, they often sneak past the usual security checks and land smack in your inbox.

Here's how to keep you and your data safe:

  1. Stay sharp. If an email seems even a little bit shady, trust your gut.
  2. Before clicking any links or downloading attachments, double-check the sender. Watch out for red flags like typos or weird email addresses.
  3. Educate your team on the latest phishing tricks. Knowledge is power when it comes to keeping your company safe.
  4. Consider using top-notch security software. Yeah, it might dent your wallet a bit, but hey, peace of mind is priceless.
