Looks like we can add Target and Walmart to the list of companies that the phishing scheme is impersonating. You can find more details on the scheme over at Krebs on Security.
We couldn’t get through the first holiday weekend with some cyber crime. welivesecurity.com is reporting that 2 phishing emails are making the rounds from their article:
Two phishing emails have shown up in my inbox in the last two days, masquerading as orders from popular American retailers: The Home Depot (a home-improvement store chain) and Costco (a warehouse club). Both serve as timely reminders that, as Americans recover from their Thanksgiving celebrations and the online search for holiday bargains begins, criminals are also active online, seeking to exploit the seasonal surge in shopping activity, from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, and beyond. Hopefully, it goes without saying that you should delete messages like this right away (if you really are expecting notification about an order from a retailer, confirm it with a phone call, or by typing the company URL into your browser and navigating to the order tracking page).
