A new phishing campaign is underway that pretends to be a list undelivered email being held for you on your Outlook Web Mail service. Users are then prompted to decide what they wish to do with each mail, with the respective links leading to a fake login form. Recently, we have seen quite a few interesting spam campaigns such as account cancellation notices and alerts about unusual volumes of file deletions. This campaign is just as interesting as it uses the subject line of "Notifications | undelivered emails to your inbox" and pretends to be a list of email being held on the server for you. This phishing email then prompts you to decide whether you want to delete all of the emails, deny them, allow them to be delivered, or to whitelist them for the future. Regardless of the link you click on, you will be brought to a fake "Outlook Web App" landing page that asks you to enter your login credentials. Once you enter your credentials, the page will save them so that they can be retrieved by the scammer at a later date. Thankfully, unlike recent phishing landing pages hosted on Excel Online or Microsoft Azure, this phishing scam utilizes a landing page hosted on a hacked site. This makes it easier to detect as suspicious as the URL will not be the correct one for your email server. As always, when receiving emails that lead to login forms, make sure to examine the URL where the form resides before entering your login credentials. If there is any doubt, always ask your system administrators. We have the text of the mail posted on OUR FORUM.
