New Identity Theft Scheme Targets Members of the Military

A new identity theft scheme targets members of the military.

U.S. Army Cyber Command issued an alert about a phishing attempt to lure victims into revealing private information.

Emails to military staffers from would-be crooks pretending to be federal human resource officers with the Office of Personnel Management include possible ransomware, the warning says.

Cyber crooks "consistently attempt to impact both US military and civilian systems," a U.S. Army Cyber Command spokesman said.
