If you own a pizzeria, you’ll want to read this story. A Richmond, Virginia-based pizzeria is speaking out after cyber thieves used the company’s name to send out phishing e-mails to unsuspecting consumers.
The e-mail tells the customer that he or she has made a charge to the pizzeria, and if it is not legitimate, to click a link for help. Instead of aid, the link downloads malware to the computer, which can give another user access to that machine.
