In a recent article,¬†“thirteen faculty and staff members at Illinois State University were the apparent victims of an information breach that allowed someone to divert their direct-deposit payroll payments to another account, according to university officials.” Similar attacks have been made against universities and have¬†“involved people filing fraudulent tax returns using the information they obtained to divert tax refunds.”

So, anyone thinking that they aren’t a target just because they don’t have access to important information should realize that attackers are indeed after “you” to make a quick buck!
