Impersonation Attacks on Microsoft Teams

Some Team users have experienced two different attacks by phishing on Office 365 logins. A compelling cyber threat that imitates Microsoft Teams notifications so as to obtain the Office 365 information of users is happening.

Just around the period that the U.S Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) notified the public about remote-work implementation of Office 365, is when this news of this threat broke out. According to CISA, organizations are not practicing healthy cyber hygiene relating to Office 365 implementation, thereby resulting in an escalation of attacks and threats.

Cyber attackers typically redirect users using different URLs, in an attempt to hide the real URL that contains the attack. This method is used to prevent email protection services from discovering the main malicious link. The landing page that contains the threat usually looks identical to the real webpage.
