Cybercriminals are not holding back on LastPass users as a new phishing campaign has recently launched with the intent to steal your data.
The first portion of the campaign is a phishing email that asks you to verify your personal information by clicking on a link. The messages launch in waves with several attempts to impersonate LastPass. Take a look at this example LastPass showed in their blog PSA below:
The email is very similar if you were to receive an email from LastPass, making it hard to detect. LastPass also posted a warning on their blog, “Our customers began reporting a pervasive and convincing phishing campaign. The campaign had global reach and targeted a variety of sectors, including 87 of our own employees."
Even after you click on the link the fake login page from the hacker-controlled login site at “customer-lastpass[.]su” looks like almost identical to the LastPass login page:
It still baffles me how legitimate phishing emails can look these days. Cybercriminals are going so low as to target victims of the data breach that occurred last year. That's why it's always important to be careful when opening any email, and if you're a LastPass user, make sure to be vigilant of the warning signs.
