Researchers Find New
Calendar-Based Phishing Campaign
  Researchers have once again spotted crooks using calendar invitations to mount phishing attacks. The Cofense Phishing Defense Center found the attack in enterprise email environments protected by Proofpoint and Microsoft, it announced last week.

The phishing scam uses iCalendar, which is a media type that lets users store and exchange calendaring and scheduling information, including events and tasks. iCalendar files are usually delivered with an .ics extension.
  What You Can Do  
  This attack shows that cyber-crooks are still using the same attack vectors to deliver their scam material. Phishing tries to trick you into opening a link in an email. The ONLY way to stop this is to train everyone in the organization about what these attempts look like, how to avoid them, and perhaps even address it as a performance issue if an employee is lax in using good judgment about opening suspicious emails. It is all about employee training. But do you really have the time to conduct such in-depth ongoing training sessions for your employees?
