Hacker News article The philippining newspaper Pajhwok has announced the first step to remove the malicious phishing emails, which were sent in the past 24 hours.
According to the publication, the emails were sent to its employees.
“We have removed the malicious emails and have identified them,” Pajwok News wrote in a blog post.
“The emails contained malicious code and we are looking into how to take action.”
Pajwoks website is now accessible from the web, and the company has released a patch to remove it.
The email addresses in question were phishing scams.
Phishing emails have been used in attacks on a number of websites, including Amazon, Facebook, Google, Twitter and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The phishing messages in question targeted employees, employees of Pajws business, and employees of other Pajwidok enterprises.
“In this attack, an employee of Pijwok was infected with the malicious code, but he was not the target of the attack.
An employee of another Pajwit business was infected as well, but that was not affected,” Pijws Vice President of Marketing Jodie Siboncio said.
The malicious code contained malware called MalwareX and the Pajwyoks phishing website was one of the many websites targeted.
The phishing email addresses were sent via the email addresses of several employees of the business.
“An employee of the Pijwit office, a business representative of the office and a customer of Pjwok, were infected.
The Pijwidok business representative was not,” the company said.
“All the affected employees have been offered an amnesty,” Pjws added.
Pajws’ website has been updated to delete the phishing mailer, but users have been told to “uninstall and reinstall” it.
“A temporary patch has been released,” the website said.
“We appreciate the quick response to the issue,” Sibonti told TechCrunch.
“Pajwyok’s email service is a secure and reliable one, and we hope that our users are able to take advantage of this information when it’s safe to do so.”
