How Email Scammers Hit Arlington, Mass., Covered Their Tracks

“The town of Arlington, Mass., recently disclosed that it had lost nearly $446,000 in a monthslong business email compromise (BEC) scam, and it is now updating its cybersecurity protections.“

“Cyber criminals diverted four monthly payments meant for a vendor involved with rebuilding the town’s high school, and they carefully managed compromised employee email accounts to hide the fraud“

“This began in September 2023, when the cyber criminals discovered real emails from a vendor about payment processing issues, and they jumped on the opportunity for fraud, wrote Town Manager Jim Feeney in the letter.“
