Fake email making millions for crooks!

 
 

The International Criminal Police Organization has been doing some research into cyber attacks in West Africa. They have reported that in the last 3 years the crooks have pocketed over $3bn from spoof email attacks and hidden malware on machines.

The crooks have been sending genuine looking emails to company’s accounts staff, which is trying to trick the staff to transfer large sums to their accounts. Sadly, this has been working and companies have been losing millions due to lack of training or procedures.
