Good news! From now on you can also forward suspicious text messages (or smishing) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Just send us a screenshot and we will have the link in the message blocked!
Earlier this year, we warned about a tsunami of smishing messages coming our way. We still receive 100s of reports of such fake messages every day. The good news is that these messages can now also be forwarded to email@example.com. All you have to do is take a screenshot and send it. Our technology can detect the links in those images. If the links refer to malicious web pages, we can have these pages blocked.
Cybercriminals use current events to make you curious and to make you click. We see several smishing messages that promise something in response to the corona crisis. But also messages that seem to come from the government, a bank or a courier company, continue to circulate. There are currently also false messages circulating about the Christmas period: great deals, gift ideas, parcel delivery, etc.
Don't get caught out and always be alert.jd alert.
