KnowBe4 Scam Of The Week: Expect Uber-themed phishing attacks

 

Uber has suffered a data breach a year ago, and the address and email information of 57 million people were stolen. Uber paid off the hackers who then supposedly deleted the data, but that cannot be confirmed.

Watch out for phishing emails related to this Uber data theft, for instance that your "Uber account was compromised" and that you need to change your password, or anything else related to Uber that could be suspicious.

Never click on a link in an email, always go to the website yourself through your browser's address bar or a bookmark you have previously set.

Always remember: "When in doubt, throw it out!" Stop Look Think - Don't be fooled.
