Phishing email claims to be from SRA…

Beware of all phishing. Spear phishing is more precise and aimed a little more this looks to be a more sophisticated standard phish.

Security for UK legal professionals

We have just heard about an email circulating legal practices which claims to be from the SRA. Apparently, it looks quite convincing but in actual fact it is a phishing email that could be damaging or contain malware or virus. We have not seen this email but as phishing emails are very common, we wanted to raise awareness that this is a potential threat.

If you are in any doubt, contact the SRA but do not click on any links or open any documents attached without being totally convinced of its authenticity.

The email in question will be from xx@sra.org and not xx@sra.org.uk (ie no UK on the end).
