Phishing emails have been used by hackers in various new and creative way to lure users.
Hackers are impersonating standard chartered banks and sending out fake emails to the targeted individuals. The authentic site of the bank is “sc.com” and the hackers have used “scb.com” to send out these malicious emails.
The email states that the attached payment advice is based on the request from the sender. Phishing mail portrays itself to be informative and important for the targeted user. Since, the fake site mentioned is very similar to the authentic site of the bank, users can easily be tricked to believe that the email is from SC bank.
