On Friday we reported some issues around phishing attempts against mail2web.com users. The phishing scam requested that mail2web.com users email their username and password to a email@example.com.
We have now received further reports of phishing emails that were sent to myhosting.com users that appear to be from “firstname.lastname@example.org”. The email indicates that your account has been deactivated and asks you to run an attached utility in order to restore your mailbox. The email is not actually from myhosting.com and the attached file is in fact a malware utility which may be used to compromise your account.
We recommend that all myhosting.com customers and users exercise extreme caution when it comes to such notification emails. We will never ask you to email us your password, and we will never instruct you to run such a utility to restore your account.
If you receive any emails of this nature, please err on the side of caution and report it to email@example.com or contact us at 1-866-289-5091 before following any instructions.
If you have fallen victim to one of these phishing attempts, please contact us for further assistance.
