What is this attack about?
It has recently been reported that attackers are exploiting the surge in the use of Microsoft Teams in an attempt to trap unsuspecting users. This is being done by emails being sent out with links to a Team’s meeting. When you click the link you will be taken to a spoofed Microsoft page and asked to log in with your Microsoft credentials. This allows the attackers to steal your username and password and then use it themselves.
