Fraud campaign targeting US businesses
A new malware strain, dubbed Dyre Wolf, has been identified targeting businesses with spear-phishing emails and social engineering attempts. The purpose of the malware is to steal online banking credentials and send fraudulent wires. Fraudsters use the malware to convince the victim something is wrong with their bank account(s). A pop-up asking for sensitive information or with a fake call center 1-800 number appears on the victim’s computer screen. In order to gain access to online banking, the impostor who answers the bogus 1-800 number will use social engineering to trick the caller into divulging sensitive login information and token credentials.
First National Bank Alaska employees will never ask for your token code or account password as a method of verifying your identity and www.fnbalaska.com does not have any pop-ups requesting information. Do not share sensitive login information with anyone for any reason. Call 777-4362 or 1-800-856-4362 (4FNB) immediately to report any suspicious or unusual activity on your accounts.
