The Comodo Antispam Labs (CASL) team has identified a malware attack targeted specifically at businesses and consumers who make purchases from Pandora Jewelers, an international Danish jewelry manufacturer and retailer known for its customizable charm bracelets, rings and necklaces.
E-mail phishing activity rises dramatically as the holiday season is upon us – and Pandora Jewelers is a new phishing target, using language that capitalizes on the public’s desire for an extreme sale. The email is designed to capture credit card and financial information from business or consumers who try and make a purchase.
The e-mail spoofing threat arrived from the sender address firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Pandora Clearance.”
In the email screen grab, the e-mail appears to be from a fictitious jewelry reseller advertising a Pandora Jewelry sale. Pandora Jewelry typically allows its official resellers to promote the sale of their products via their own store websites and through e-mail promotions, which is why this phishing e-mail can be so dangerous to unsuspecting victims.
The Comodo Antispam Labs team identified the Pandora phishing email through IP, domain, and URL analysis.
The links provided should have pointed to http://www.pandora.net, however, the target links are directed to http://www.bestpandorajewelry.com/index.html.
“Phishing emails are one of the biggest threats for techonlogy users today, because they are abusing the trust that is built between consumers, business and brands,” said Fatih Orhan, Director of Technology for Comodo and the Comodo Anti-spam Labs. “The hackers are pretending to be from a trusthworthy entity such as a business owner, an e-commerce site or a popular social network, with the intention to steal customer’s credentials and/or financial information. At Comodo, we work diligently in creating innovative technology solutions that stay a step ahead of the cyber criminals, and keep enterprises and IT environments safe.”
The ComodoAntispam Labs team is made up of more than 35 IT security professionals, ethical hackers, computer scientists and engineers, all full time Comodo employees, analyzing and filtering spam, phishing and malware from across the globe. With offices in the US, Turkey, Ukraine, the Philippines and India, the CASL team analyzes more than 1,000,000 potential pieces of phishing, spam or other malicious/unwanted emails per day, using the insights and findings to secure and protect its current customer base and the at-large public, enterprise and Internet community.
