New Phishing Campaign Targets Saudi Government Service Portal

Multiple phishing domains imitating Absher, the Saudi government service site, have been set up to supply citizens with fake services and steal their passwords.

CloudSEK cybersecurity researchers made this finding and published an advisory about the threat on Thursday.

Government services in the Saudi region have reportedly recently been a top target for cybercriminals looking to steal user credentials and exploit them in other cyberattacks, according to CloudSEK.

To lessen the effects of these assaults, CloudSEK urged government agencies to keep an eye on phishing attempts that target citizens and warn and educate them about the risks, through, for instance, advising them not to click on questionable links.
