LogMeIn EMail Phishing Attack

Preying on the popular use of LogMeIn (an online meeting & collaboration service), the cyber criminals are trying a new tactic to infect your computer and steal your information.

You receive an email message from ‘LogMeIn.com’ with a subject line of ‘Your LogMeIn Pro payment has been processed!’. The content looks like a typical ‘Thank you for your payment’ sort of message and references a payment amount of $999. There’s an Excel spreadsheet attached that’s referred to as a receipt. Opening the attachment on a computer with a version of Excel that hasn’t been patched runs some code that infects your computer and begins stealing data.

Remind your users to stop and think before acting on email. And make sure your systems and all your software applications are updated regularly.
