    FBI warns of email forwarding rules being abused in recent hacks

    This has been an issue and standard procedure for hackers for years now.

    They setup rules to auto-forward your mail, as well as a rule to auto-delete all emails with the subject line related to the original phish email in order to disguise themselves even further.

    We’ve had 3 clients hit with this recently. O365 (and I assume other systems) will let you limit forwarding rules.

    Still comes back to awareness training. People are either getting phished or giving their credentials up.
