If you wonder how 10,00 strong armies march towards each other in movies like the Lord of the Rings, this article is for you.

A new phishing campaign is exploiting the ongoing uncertainty about company policies related to COVID-19. The campaign uses emails that purport to be from a company’s HR office informing employees that they are required to fill out a vaccination status form. Clicking on the link in the email will take you to a Microsoft Outlook credential phishing page.
Another new scam is using job postings on LinkedIn. Cybercriminals impersonate being part of a legitimate company when posting a job. The victim initiates the connection and thinks they are installing a program to fill out an application but actually downloads malicious software.
