Email phishing continues and a recent attack uses the Emotet botnet to capture a user’s email credentials, but only if the user opens the attachment or clicks the embedded URL link.

You can easily check if your email username and password have been nabbed by entering your email address into the website: https://haveibeenpwned.com/
Most of us enter our email address as the username when creating accounts at various websites. If those websites have been hit by a data breach, thousands or millions of email addresses with passwords may have been captured and eventually find their way into credential databases for sale in the Dark Web. To search for all instances of your credentials at any and all websites that show up in the Dark Web, LeeShanok offers a more complete search. This enables each user to change their password at those website accounts.
We offer a single FREE Dark Web Scan of your company’s email domain and all associated email addresses (https://www.leeshanok.com/free-dark-web-scan/).
