A new phishing campaign is abusing Microsoft Teams messages to send malicious attachments that install the DarkGate Loader malware.
The campaign started in late August 2023, when Microsoft Teams phishing messages were seen being sent by two compromised external Office 365 accounts to other organizations.
These accounts were used to trick other Microsoft Teams users into downloading and opening a ZIP file named "Changes to the vacation schedule."
