Companies on Alert for Potential Scam Emails

An email sent out this morning on behalf of Belron International, Safelite’s parent company, from Humphrey Singer may contain malware. The email contained two attachments, however, it listed “belrone.com” as the sending address, which is not a valid domain, according to experts.

“Hackers are extremely fond of malicious programs called ‘ransomware’ which they use to deny you access to your network and essentially hold your data hostage until you pay them an exorbitant ransom to have it removed,” said Bryan Hovey, Key Media and Research web developer. “Programs like these can and have crippled some company’s ability to operate and have even forced some to shut down.”

Some industry companies have had some of its employees working remotely since COVID-19 began impacting the country, but employees still need to be aware of the potential “scam” emails that may end up in their inboxes.

    I doubt very much that it came from anyone at Belron – your security ‘expert’ should have told you that this is very typical of attackers to generate such email – they look genuine but aren’t – and don’t come from the real sender at all ! – everyone should look carefully at any email regardless as per your expert suggests – take care folks !
