The National Telecom and Information Technology Security Board (NTISB) has issued a strong warning to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) that new assaults on the FBR’s IT systems are anticipated in order to collect secret information.
On Wednesday, the NTSIB issued a warning to the FBR, recommending that staff managing IT systems, computers, and guardians of taxpayer records take preventative steps.
The NTISB has alerted the FBR in a new letter that hackers are sending government job advertisement-related emails to unconstrained users in order to get private information and launch a cyberattack on government organisations.
Hackers are spreading a phishing email with the subject “Govt Jobs/ Recruitment” that includes a malicious Word document as an attachment. A trojan executes in the background when you download the file. Confucius APT Group used a spear-phishing assault to collect information on a massive scale using a biodata form.
An individual’s computer/device is infiltrated when they open the infected email attachment, and the hacker obtains access to all stored data.
