The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) on Wednesday released an alert about phishing attacks targeting various government organizations to steal logins for the Small Business Administration COVID-19 loan relief accounts.

Some Countermeasures:

Checking the source of the message for the sender address will reveal the real one. Simply comparing it with the legitimate email will show the fraud attempt.

Paying attention to the URL in the address bar should also ensure that you don’t fall for a trick and are on the genuine page.

CISA recommends organizations include warning banners for messages from an external source. Even if the message bypasses email defenses, users may act with more caution.
