New Phishing email, appears to be from enom@dreamhost.com


#1

I thought I’d let everyone know I got a Phishing email setup to look like it came from "enom@dreamhost.com" the other day. I’ll attach it below.

It had my name, so I must have been harvested from one of the many big breaches…but I guess the attackers spent the time to see Dreamhost hosts my domain, and so have the phishing email appear to come from them.

So, I opened a ticket with Dreamhost about this. Some guys from the DreamHost Abuse/Security Team contacted me, asking for the email headers. I sent them, and they concluded this is a legit email from Enom. I’d never heard of Enom before, but it seems they do Dreamhost domain registration stuff.

Sorry for the false alarm.
