Fake “Image Has Been Sent” Evernote Emails Lead to Malicious Sites


Beware of fake Evernote notifications!

In case you come across a suspicious Evernote notification in your inbox, act with caution since it might be part of a cybercriminal campaign designed to lure users to malicious websites.

According to Dynamoo’s Blog, the fake emails appear to come from accounts@pcfa.co.in and they carry the subject line “Image has been sent.”

The emails look something like this:

“Image has been sent.

The link doesn’t point to Evernote, but to one of many malicious websites set up to serve malware.

A list of the domains and IP addresses used by cybercriminals in this attack are available on Dynamoo’s Blog. The same group (RU:8080) is behind numerous spam runs, including ones that leverage the names of Pinterest, Dropbox, the BBB, and UPS.
