Travelex Warns Customers: Watch Out For Phishing Or Telephone Scams In Aftermath of Ransomware Attack
A little more than two weeks ago on New Year’s Eve, Foreign Currency services supplier Travelex was hit by a Sodinokibi (REvil) Ransomware attack. It has yet to recover and its web sites and systems are still down. Travelex finally posted a more comprehensive update on its corporate holdings web site. Customers were warned to raise their awareness and be wary of email [phishing] or telephone scams that might follow in the wake of the attack. Travelex is a big fish. Given the considerable media coverage, concerns are real that scammers may also target its customers in social engineering scams.
