Fairfield, NJ (prHWY.com) October 13, 2017 - Phishing attacks, ransomware, and hacking have become all too common these days. These malicious attempts to gain control of a valuable computer network are affecting businesses of all sizes -- and it would seem few are safe.

OutsourceMyIT, an IT service provider based out of New Jersey, recently issued the following warning to its clients and colleagues:

We were recently informed that a client was targeted by scammers who tried to gain access to their business network through social engineering

The attempt was made over the phone by a caller who claimed to work for an IT company. They requested access to our client's computer via remote, but thankfully, she recognized the red flags and ended the call.

These attacks are becoming more and more commonplace, which is why it's more important than ever that you and your staff are informed and alert.


OutsourceMyIT has posted full details on these recent attacks on their blog, along with a list of "red flags" that can indicate if someone is being targeted.
