BE AWARE OF FAKE ADV, FESTIVAL VOUCHERS
US-CERT reminds users to remain vigilant when browsing online this holiday season. E-cards from unknown senders may contain malicious links. Fake advertisements or shipping notifications may deliver infected attachments. Spoofed e-mail messages and fraudulent posts on social networking sites may request support for phony causes.
To avoid seasonal campaigns that could result in security breaches, identity theft, or financial loss, US-CERT encourages users to take the following action:
· Approach similar content with caution. Do not follow unsolicited links or download attachments from unknown sources.
