Brad Taylor, CEO, Proficio commented on the middle attack, 49 arrested, 6mil euros theft:

“There are many variations of scams that use social engineering to convince targets to wire funds to bank accounts controlled by the fraudsters. Some use similar domain names to trick targets into thinking they are receiving a legitimate email from their manager or a vendor with a request to transfer funds. Organizations should educate their finance teams to be aware of such attack and  identify suspicious, lookalike email domains and block them.”
