This morning, Swedish organizations experienced a wave of phishing emails claiming to be from Swedbank. The email is telling the recipient that their credit card has been cancelled for security reasons. In the email, there is a link to ”re-activate” the account. The link leads to a site where the recipient is asked to disclose details regarding their credit card.

Example of phishing attempt targeting Swedbank customers.

This phishing attempt is not very convincing when it comes to the email itself. But there might still be some users that fall for it. Therefore, we recommend you issue a warning to your employees to stay alert.


Stay safe!
