By 22nd May 2017 News
Following the WannaCry ransomware attacks which has affected over 200,000 computers in at least 150 countries around the world, a spate of emails purporting to be from internet service providers warning customers to perform a security check have emerged.Action Fraud, the UK’s national fraud and cyber crime reporting center, revealed on the 18th May 2017 about a phishing email purporting to be from BT requesting users to perform a “security check” otherwise they would be unable to access their accounts.

The phishing email is sophisticated as it also comes at the same time that ISPs are genuinely informing their customers about the possibility of a security breach in the wake of the WannaCry situation.
