Unknown persons attempt to access the editorial email inbox of the Kherson media outlet MOST

Unknown persons are trying to access to the editorial email inbox of Kherson's MOST.

The media outlet's editor Serhiy Nikitenko reported this to the IMI.

According to him, they received a letter supposedly from the Ukrainian State Tax Service, but there are all the hallmarks that the letter was Google translated from Russian into Ukrainian.

"This is not the first time we have received such letters, but this one, unlike the others, which were disguised as newsletters from foreigners, is written in broken Ukrainian and claims to be from the State Tax Service of Ukraine," he said.

The letter had an attached archive with "documents" which, Nikitenko supposes, may contain malware that will help the criminals access the receiver's e-mail inbox.

"The scammers are learning; in this letter they only made one glaring mistake when they wrote, 'We have substantial differences' with the word 'substantial' entirely in Russian. Well, it's obvious that they don't know that communication with the tax office in Ukraine is done through a personal account," Serhiy added.

Previously, IMI explained how to protect yourself from phishing.
