Beware of Mailed USBs with Malware

For Everyone

A specific group of cybercriminals, known for targeting businesses through phishing emails, are mailing USB devices to select employees at targeted companies. In some cases, the packages also include items like teddy bears or gift cards. When the USB is plugged into a computer, it automatically injects malware that steals payment card data and other key information.

To keep HM safe, don’t plug in unknown USB devices to any computer.
