Microsoft Office 365 Credential Theft

Microsoft Office 365 Credential Theft

August 29, 2018

Be on the lookout for a current cyberattack that tries to trick you into giving up your Microsoft Office 365 (O365) username and password.

This attack tries to steal your Microsoft® Office 365® (O365) login credentials so that criminals can access anything you have stored in O365. This could include your email, OneDrive files, and anything you’ve put in the cloud. An attacker sends a fraudulent email that contains links to an authentic-looking (but fake) O365 login page designed to steal your credentials.

This brief (two-minute) module can help you identify the attack and explains what to do if you see it. A quick guide on what to look for when evaluating if an email is fraudulent is below.
