Ring Customers Targeted in Phishing Attack

Ring is a popular brand of security cameras designed for home safety. Unfortunately, Ring customers were the latest victims of a phishing attack. Cybercriminals sent phishing emails spoofed as Ring to try and steal customers’ sensitive information.

Cybercriminals start this attack by sending you a phishing email with an HTML file attached. The email looks like it’s from Ring, and it instructs you to open the file to update your Ring membership. If you click this file, you’ll be redirected to a malicious website that spoofs Ring’s login page. This website prompts you to enter sensitive information, such as your credit card number and social security number. If you enter your information, you’ll be redirected to Ring’s legitimate website, making the email look more real.

Remember that this type of attack isn’t exclusive to Ring. Cybercriminals could use this technique to impersonate any type of service.
