The authentic firstname.lastname@example.org email address is being used in a new phishing scam that YouTube is investigating and alerting users to. The scam attempts to trick users into divulging their login information. One of the biggest video-sharing websites in the world, YouTube, has become a target for phishing attacks thanks to its enormous user base. With the platform’s Share Video by Email tool, which sends out phishing emails that appear genuine, scammers have discovered a new way to catch YouTubers off guard. Because of this tendency, YouTube has become aware and advises users to exercise caution. YouTube has shared information regarding a phishing scheme in which emails are sent from a legitimate YouTube account. The malicious email appears to have been sent directly from YouTube using the email@example.com email address. Creator of social media content Kevin Breeze, tweeted that the latest phishing scheme is not a counterfeit email but an exploitation of the video-sharing platform and informed YouTube of it. This shows that scammers use the platform’s sharing function to send these emails. The phishing email contains a YouTube video and a message advising consumers of YouTube’s new monetization strategy and new guidelines, similar to past phishing scams.
