Delete suspicious letters, do not open any attached files, and do not follow any links.
We would like to warn you of the increasing number of phishing attacks via email and attempted distribution of malicious software. Recipients responsible for cash transfers (e.g. finance department staff) are especially exposed to this risk.
Phishers’ email messages are hidden behind the official KPMG domain (@kpmg.ru). However, they have a number of unique characteristics which help you tell the spoofing:
1) they comprise or refer to documents the addressee never requested, and as a rule, the addressee does not know the sender
2) they use impersonal constructions and telegraphic sentences normally used in bulk mailing
3) they press to act immediately: download, upload, click a link
Should you receive a doubtful letter, please contact your KPMG contact and have the authenticity of the letter confirmed, or forward it as an email attachment to KPMG Information Security in Russia and the CIS.
Please stay alert!
