Phishing Awareness at SmartVault
Threat actors use email spoofing to send emails that look like they originate from SmartVault. These phishing scams will trick you into sharing sensitive personal information or downloading a malicious file, such as malware. The content of these emails may look like legitimate emails that you receive from SmartVault, using a smartvault.com e-mail address, with similar branding and format, like the example below.
The email content may include a hyperlink to view a file in SmartVault, which, if clicked by a user, could result in malicious code being downloaded and executed or lead them to a spoofed domain asking for sensitive information to be entered.
SmartVault is aware of these phishing e-mails and is reporting them to relevant cybercrime reporting centers and taking steps to improve e-mail security practices.
