Spear Phishing Email Attack
Author: EM @ KING.NET
I received four spear phishing emails attack this month addressed to some of our domain properties. Just like other spear phishing emails, they are look normal email message targeting specific organization (or individual) seeking unauthorized access to your computer.
Here’s an example.
The email address came from email@example.com . First sign of this email is a spam because Enom don’t use this email and domain name.
Domain ?????.COM Suspension Notice.
The following domain names have been suspended for violation of the ENOM, INC. Abuse Policy:
Domain Name: ?????.COM (I removed the domain name)
Registrar: ENOM, INC.
Registrant Name: DOMAIN MANAGER
Multiple warnings were sent by ENOM, INC. Spam and Abuse Department to give you an opportunity to address the complaints we have received.
We did not receive a reply from you to these email warnings so we then attempted to contact you via telephone.
We had no choice but to suspend your domain name when you did not respond to our attempts to contact you.
