Thousands of Microsoft Teams users are being targeted by a new phishing campaign. An automated message that claims to be from Teams, instead steals the recipient’s Office 365 login details upon opening it.
Users receive a ‘missed chat’ notification, which urges them to click through to a link, opening up their system to cyber criminals. This is a particularly large problem at the moment, as the number of monthly Teams users has more than doubled between 2019 and 2020, from 32 million to 75 million.
Teams has been a critical tool for businesses who have more staff remote working than ever before. The communication methods it offers have been important in linking colleagues together through video and audio calls, as well as its text messaging.
To avoid any issues within your business, we would recommend notifying your colleagues of this scam as soon as possible.
