The Summer of Phish: fraudulent bar association emails target lawyers


#1

Earlier this summer, a phishing campaign hit many lawyers nationwide. The emails pretended to be from various state bar associations, claiming past due invoices and urgent bar-related information. The email copy contained links to malware and some included ransomware.

Another email phishing campaign targeted “biglaw” firms (full-service law firms that also specialize in mergers/acquisitions, banking and high-stakes corporate litigation). At least one of these firms fell victim to the attacks.
