Flyers got phished and shared the wealth


(Brian Fulmer) #1

My CFO forwarded this to me this AM, we’ve previously seen a half-dozen different companies we do business with get hosed via their Google accounts (cloud hosted email, what could possibly go wrong?).

Dear Valued Flyers Customer,

Recently, a few of our employees’ email accounts were compromised. As a result, some customers and vendors may have received a malicious email claiming one of our employees has sent an electronic document through Docusign or Google Docs. If anyone in your organization has clicked the link in the email, we advise that they immediately change their email password just to be safe.

None of our internal systems or customer information has been compromised in this attack and this email is purely precautionary. The only data that was potentially exposed were email addresses. If you have any further questions, please feel free to call our Customer Service department

At least this won’t put them out of business, pretty sure at least one of the earlier victims is toast three months later.
