PKO Bank Polski has published a message in which it warns against the activities of fraudsters. In the messages sent, criminals encourage you to open the attachment. This one contains malware that can be used by fraudsters to take control of your bank account.

As we read in the bank’s communication, the e-mail from the fraudsters was accompanied by an attachment with a double .pdf.exe extension, which contains malware. In addition, there are syntax and language errors in the subject and in the content itself.

“Do not open attachments, do not click on links in these types of e-mails. If you click on the link, you may lose money and control of your account,” the bank warned.

This is another warning against scammers impersonating banks that has been appearing recently. At the beginning of the month, the Cybersecurity Team at the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (KNF CSIRT) warned against fraudsters impersonating Bank BNP Paribas. Cybercriminals have created ads that lead to a fake e-banking website for business customers.

NASK has also recently warned against the return of the Hydra malware campaign. The scammers targeted customers of Santander Bank Polska. Criminals sent e-mails with information about limiting access to the account due to the alleged lack of an appropriate application on the mobile device.
