Amazon Prime Day Phishing
Check Point Research (CPR) observed a 37% increase in Amazon-themed phishing attacks during the first week of July, ahead of Amazon Prime day this week. The emails come in a variety of templates, including one that informs recipients that they’ve recently made an expensive purchase. The user is directed to download an attachment that contains malware. Another email tells users that their payment method needs to be confirmed, and contains a link to a phishing site.
