LogMeIn is a popular remote access tool used by IT professionals to gain entry to their employees’ machines. These tools are especially popular right now with so many people working remotely. Unfortunately, with popularity, comes risk. Cybercriminals are impersonating LogMeIn in a new phishing attack. The phishing email claims that you need to click a link in the email to download an “urgent security update”. If you click this link, it takes you to a phony login page for LogMeIn. If you enter your credentials on this look-alike page, the information will be sent straight to the bad guys. If you fall for this trick, you could give attackers access to countless machines within your organization’s network.
