Computer Emergency Response Team KZ-CERT of the State Technical Service of the National Security Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan revealed an information security incident on the Internet resource mobiltechnics.com/kz-techno, classified as a “fraudulent Internet resource”.
Malefactors, by means of mobile messengers and e-mail, carried out mailing with the invitation to take a survey on the Internet resource mobiltechnics.com/kz-techno.
In order to receive guaranteed money, the participant is asked to take a survey and, through the WhatsApp messenger, share a link containing the following message:
Қысқы демалыстар үшін "Технодом" 120000 теңге сомасына тегін купондарды 31 желтоқсанға дейін таратады. Менің купонымды алды mobiltechnics.com/kz-techno
After the delivery of messages, the survey participant was redirected to an Internet resource with subsequent redirects to advertising Internet resources.
Recommendations from KZ-CERT
During the holidays, due to the increase in the volume of purchases and advertising mailings, we urge to be especially vigilant and not to visit, not to go to suspicious pages.
We advise you not to go to the gaming, entertainment-oriented Internet resources, unfamiliar resources, not to follow links and banners with “sensations” - often such news is used to infect users with various malicious programs.
Also, be careful about the security of the phone, which comes SMS - notifications and one-time codes.
We advise you to consider any suspicious letter from an unknown addressee, on an unexpected topic, where you are offered or you are trying to get to perform an operation urgently, or in a short time - as malicious.
We advise you to carefully check the address of the sender. Attackers can send you a letter on behalf of your friend or trusted organization, changing one or two letters in the address.
IF YOU BECAME A VICTIM OF FRAUD, CONTACT THE KAZAKHSTANI COMPUTER EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM AND GET A CONSULTATION CALL FOR FREE ON A SHORT NUMBER 1400.
