DocuSign has admitted they were the victim of a data breach that has led to massive phishing attacks which used exfiltrated DocuSign information. Ouch. So here is your Scam of the Week.
They discovered the data breach when on May 9, 15, and 17 DocuSign, customers were being targeted with phishing campaigns. They now are advising customers to filter or delete any emails with specific subject lines. We do not repeat them here, because this newsletter might be filtered out, but you can see them at the blog, together with screenshots:
The campaigns all have Word docs as attachments, and use social engineering to trick users into activating Word’s macro feature which will download and install malware on the user’s workstation. DocuSign warned that it is highly likely there will be more campaigns in the future.
So if you get emails that look like they come from DocuSign and have an attachment, be very careful. If there is any doubt, pick up the phone and verify before you electronically sign any DocuSign email. Remember: Think Before You Click.”
