Security Advisory - cPanel Security Token Scam

(Classified under: Security)

Posted on 28 February 2020

Please be aware that there is a new email-based phishing scam targeting cPanel users that has started being sent within the last 24 hours.

The email is supposedly sent by cPanel software, which you might recognise as the software we use for web hosting management on some of our servers.

The fraudulent message warns of an error supposedly caused by an invalid cPanel, WHM or webmail Security Token. The email goes on to requests the email password for the email address that the email has been sent to.

If you receive one of these emails, please simply delete it.

Hope this helps you and yours stay safe online.
