MICROSOFT has warned Office 365 users about a scam email campaign that could steal their login details.
The tech giant's Security Intelligence team has revealed details about the phishing scam that uses several techniques to evade filters and enter your inbox.
The scam is also said to try and steal Google Cloud logins.
Microsoft Security Intelligence tweeted: "An active phishing campaign is using a crafty combination of legitimate-looking original sender email addresses, spoofed display sender addresses that contain the target usernames and domains, and display names that mimic legitimate services to try and slip through email filters."
It added: "The original sender addresses contain variations of the word "referral" and use various top-level domains, including the domain com[.]com, popularly used by phishing campaigns for spoofing and typo-squatting.
"The emails use a SharePoint lure in the display name as well as in the message, which poses as a "file share" request for supposed "Staff Reports", "Bonuses", "Pricebooks", and other content, with a link that navigates to the phishing page."
The Microsoft team warned that the scam emails contain two URLs that victims are encouraged to click on.
Anyone clicking these would then be asked to enter private login information.
This phishing campaign is said to be active now and can use a variety of other techniques to try and scam a victim.
Microsoft Defender for Office 365 should detect and block these emails but if you notice one in your inbox you should ignore it and delete it.
Never click on suspicious links and emails and always be cautious about where you're typing in your details and why.
If you do ever accidentally give away a login you should change your password immediately.
