Would an AI voice make you the victim of a phishing attack?

The latest method threat actors have turned to will have you doing a double take, as they have turned to AI generated voices. Receiving an urgent phone call from the CEO of your organisation would without doubt cause concern, leading you to want to deal with the matter instantly. However, for one LastPass employee, the phishing attempt was averted due to the fact that the hacker in question chose to contact them through WhatsApp, a platform which the employee deemed unusual for normal business communication.

If the call had come in a more formal approach, who knows if it would have been spotted as a fake, the implications would have been catastrophic, especially given the data LastPass hold in their systems. Thankfully, rather than keep quiet, LastPass decided to share the attempted attack, in the hopes that we can all learn and recognise the efforts some people are willing to go to get into any system.

While the phishing attempts become more lucrative, the solution couldn’t be simpler, secure yourself a third-party backup ASAP. Backup Systems have you covered when it comes to making sure you have a safety net from anything that could put your data in jeopardy. Even with all the latest and up to date safety measures in place, sometimes we slip up and accidentally click something we shouldn’t. In the event that an attack happens your best bet is to recover, from a previously unaffected backup, one which can get you back up on your feet.

Our managed services tab found at the top of our page contains a variety of different backups, one of which includes Microsoft 365, which if you didn’t know, doesn’t get backed up by Microsoft. Furthermore, they state you should have a third-party backup of it’s services, as they aren’t responsible for any data loss due to service downtime. Outlook goes down, or SharePoint, that’s your emails and files gone, is that something you can recover from?
