Ho, ho, horrible attempts at phishing
‘Tis the season for phishing scams. You’ve probably already seen quite a few here and there, and now there’s another one to add to the list. There’s a license key scam swirling around inboxes from scammers claiming to be Adobe, straight from the company itself.
Adobe reports the campaign attempts to lure users to download a ZIP attachment containing an executable file with malware inside. As usual, the actual email itself (viewable via ZDNet) is riddled with weird sentence structure and pronouns that aren’t capitalized, so it shouldn’t be difficult for tech-savvy users to tell if it’s a fake — especially if they haven’t even purchased an Adobe product in the past.
Keep safe while attending to your holiday affairs, and don’t open up that executable file!
