August 23 phishing attack

Phishing attack

 

Background

On August 23, a multi-staged phishing email attack hit the University of Illinois. The first wave of emails included a subject line that read "Payment has been made." People who opened the attachment with that email were infected with malware. That first piece of malware was designed to use the individual's email address book to send the second round of phishing emails.
