National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2019

Lookalike Sites

Be on the lookout for “lookalike” websites and links in emails, social media posts and online ads that mimic authentic sites. Attackers create lookalike websites that use known, trusted brand names, logos, and images to fool users. Even our own brand could be illegally copied by cybercriminals. Attackers use lookalike sites for malicious purposes, like selling counterfeit goods, stealing passwords for legitimate websites and spreading malicious software.
