‘Irma’ Sites Spike

MS-ISAC has noticed a registration of over 743 domain names including the phrase “Irma “in the past few weeks. These new domains contain other words such as help, relief, victims, recover, claims and lawsuits. We all need to be cautious in the next few months of emails, any links or visiting websites pertaining to Irma. Attackers will use the Hurricane to solicit donations for victims and deliver malware to your computer.

Recommendations

  • Use caution when seeing requests for help on social media, email and websites.
  • Do not open emails or click on any links you do not recognize.
  • Do not give any personal or banking information in an email.
  • Be cautious of websites that may use a different spelling URL or domain.
