According to Metro, hackers are adopting a new phishing scam by disguising malware as WeTransfer links.
The scam involves hackers sending a ‘Proof of Payment’ document from WeTransfer, but instead sharing a link containing malware.
WeTransfer is a free file-sharing site used by several workers and businesses. Hackers have figured out a way to use this to get around security software that detects URLs in emails.
Cybersecurity researchers from Cofense have found that hackers are now distributing malware called Lampion using misleading links.
