Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way

The NJCCIC has issued a warning about two recent phishing campaigns that utilize QR codes, also referred to as ‘Quishing’ or QR-phishing. Cyber criminals employ fraudulent QR codes, which imitate genuine ones, to trick users into divulging personal details like login credentials or financial information, as a means to combat scams. After scanning the code, users are redirected to a fake website that requests confidential information.

The NJCCIC has reported instances of phishing campaigns where individuals were sent emails pretending to be IT departments. These emails claimed that users could scan a QR code to begin the process of updating or maintaining their two-factor authentication (2FA). The campaign utilized two strategies for delivering the fake QR codes to users. One approach involved including the code within the email message itself, while the other involved attaching the QR code as a PDF file.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has documented a case of QR code fraud where scammers deceitfully placed counterfeit QR code stickers over genuine ones, redirecting drivers to false websites to make payments for parking.
