This is spear phishing. A neighbour of ours in Huntingdale asked us for some advice on this email that they received.
From what I understand of our neighbors business, there is only a handful of employees.
One of the common objections to investing in IT security is “who would want to attack us, we’re so small. We have nothing valuable to a hacker”. Still think you are too small to be a target of cybercrime?
In this instance, its more of a scam than a hack or malicious code. You can renew your business name on the ASIC website for $36 for one year, or $84 for three years. Someones making some good money!
