Phishing is a type of social engineering attack often used to steal user data, including login credentials and credit card numbers. It occurs when an attacker, masquerading as a trusted entity, dupes a victim into opening an email, instant message, or text message. The recipient is then tricked into clicking a malicious link, which can lead to the installation of malware, the freezing of the system as part of a ransomware attack or the revealing of sensitive information.
On Thursday, September 7th a group of scammers sent emails phishing for CloudFlare credentials. The email appears to come from “Cloudflare Abuse Department”, but you will see that the email did not actually come from Cloudflare. It came from a freshdesk email account which is not associated with Cloudflare.
The email also contains a link to lead the recipient to review the complaint and takes them to https://cloudflarecompliancedept.site/support/.
The site looks like the Official Cloudflare login page and even has an SSL certificate that appears to be valid. Upon investigation, the SSL certificate is a free certificate that can be obtained easily.
You can even find the fake freshdesk login page by visiting https://cloudflareabuse.freshdesk.com/support/home
This phishing attempt was very well thought out, all the way down to the smallest detail. To the average person opening their emails, it would be very difficult to identify this as malicious.
While the malicious email looked completely legit, there was one key giveaway: The mail was sent from a domain that is not associated with Cloudflare.
If you received an email from email@example.com, report it as phishing by notifying your email provider. Then delete it.
If you do click on the malicious link, do not attempt to log into the account.
If, unfortunately, you fell for the scam and granted permission to the hackers, get in touch with CloudFlare directly. While you’re at it, it’s a good idea to change your passwords.
Here is the official Cloudflare link to visit if you encounter the scam:
Rest assured that the eBoundHost JetRails eCommerce Team is actively working with Cloudflare on this discovery. As of 12:54 PM CST, it appears that the malicious domain was taken down. That does not mean the original attacker is not still active. Please take caution with any emails and access points and reach out to the JetRails team with any questions or concerns: 888-554-9990 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We at Alico have 4 domain names which we started subscribing at eBoundHost since more than 4 years. In brief they are the best webhosting provider with a sexy Control Panel and perfect fast response support.
I was just looking over our emails and adding up how much time you guys have taken to get me squared away with my new eboundhost account. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have fast, dependable hosting and the kind of immediate support I've gotten from you, after having struggled with a sub-standard host for years. eboundhost has, in the short time I've been with you, already saved me hundreds of dollars of billable time. My thanks.
I have worked with many hosting companies over the course of my years in the website building and design business. I can say with certainty that eBoundHost.com is among the elite companies. I would and have recommended them to anyone.
eBoundHost is the best. I have dealt with many hosting providers over the last 10 years. eBoundHost surpasses them all. Absolutely the highest level of quality service anywhere. Do yourself a big favor and sign on with eBoundHost.
SUPER SUPPORT - even during "off hours" - Sundays & holidays. Responses have always been within minutes of the initial call or email. The BEST vendor I have ever used in my 10 plus years as a webhosting services consumer.
EXCELLENT across the board, super quick reply to questions (about 15-30min). Outstanding! Loads of features, excellent price! Loads of space and bandwidth!
Great customer service. After looking around for a while we signed up with eBoundHost. And I can assure you that we made right decision. Customer service is so good that I don't have words to explain. I would recommend this service to everyone.
eBoundHost provides the very best service I've experienced in hosting. It takes less than 24h to get an answer to any question. They're great.
Cost, technical support and promptness of return calls are of paramount importance to me since most of my work is done on the road and waiting for a reply is frustrating. eBoundHost has been a pleasure to work with friendly, courteous and professional.
1) Their technical support people are always available to help with questions. 2)Server and network speed excellent. 3)Everything works great. 4)I highly recommend them!!!Thank you.
Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.
I waited to write a review until I had absolutely everything working, thinking that something would come up that eboundhost couldn't solve almost immediately. I've never been so happy to be wrong - their customer support is just incredible.
I came to eBoundHost after a very bad experience with a so called "big boy" - you know one of those places you are only a number. I have been a satisfied customer for more than 4 years now. The support is second to none.
I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
I'm Stan Bogdashin, a customer of your hosting company for the past 2 years. Our company provides web design, development and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services. Want to thank you for helping us by providing great hosting seamless support - this is why I continue to recommend you and don't use anyone else for hosting!
From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!
