81851369 story Seagate Hit By Targeted Phishing Attacks Seeking W2 Data (csoonline.com) 26 Posted by timothy on Monday March 07, 2016 @11:26AM from the tax-system-downsides-part-43276543-subsection-(b) dept. itwbennett writes: You can add Seagate to the growing list (now up to 7) of companies hit by malware seeking W2 data on employees. As reported on Slashdot, Snapchat disclosed the last weekend of February that someone had posed as the company's CEO and received payroll data on 700 employees. The other companies hit by similar phishing scams so far are Central Concrete Supply Co., Mercy Housing Inc., Magnolia Health Corporation, BrightView, and Polycom. Seagate learned of the incident on March 1, and the story was broken by Brian Krebs after a former employee received a notice and reached out to him.
