Phishing Scam Pretending to be Microsoft

 

This Phishing email starts out with this very simple email. As you can see if you look closely its not even a Microsoft Email. Fast forward below to after the link is clicked. It goes to what looks like a very official login page for microsoft. The problem is the address is not right at all for microsoft.

Here is the link

login.microsoftonline.service-local.eu/owa/1862d33349c8254d824d989e8ff1441b/login.php?cmd=login_submit&id=f2ee4cd3597d67d44e4a4bc950741ddaf2ee4cd3597d67d44e4a4bc950741dda&session=f2ee4cd3597d67d44e4a4bc950741ddaf2ee4cd3597d67d44e4a4bc950741dda

 

This is a dead giveaway this is some kind of phishing email. They do go to alot of trouble to make it look legit. But the actual domain is .service-local.eu this is not an official microsoft domain.

the use of login.microsoftonline does not make it legit. It does however make it look a little closer to legit.

If you have any worry about your microsoft account after you have gotten this email. Go directly to your office 365 login and do not use this link.

 

Cloud Versus Server

A huge question in businesses technology is cloud or server.

This applies to all kinds of things. Data storage,  Applications, Email.

For whatever task you are looking to accomplish there is most likely a cloud based application to achieve the task.

Servers have there place and can still be useful.

For small to medium sized business I would suggest looking through the cloud options for whatever you are trying to accomplish first.

Feel free to give us a call and ask we can help you find the right cloud based application
