Cybercriminals Are Targeting Your Payroll Accounts

“The FBI is warning of social engineering attacks being used to target employee payroll accounts. Once the attackers gain access to the account, they are changing the direct deposit bank account information to divert your salary to an account under their control and are also disabling alerts regarding payments made. This is a variation of an attack that has been successfully utilized against corporate accounts payable departments for several years, including attacks against Google and Facebook that exceeded $100m USD.”
