Encryption Malware Targeting Copiers and Printers
This is just a reminder as a new set of phishing Emails are being released targeting devices that scan and then Email the scan to a user.
All of our in-house copiers/printers, when being used to scan and send an Email, insert a subject of “Scanned from a Xerox PSAB 1st Floor” or “Scanned from a Xerox PSAB 2nd Floor”. If you receive a scanned document that appears to come from a printer/scanner that does not contain the indicated subject, please do not click on the attachment. Coupled with the most recent breach, these scanned Emails can look 100% perfect. Organizations using scanners to Email that do not have unique subjects are most likely not secure and should not be opened before verifying with a phone call, etc.
