Fake e-mails, sender “DomainFactory”

Unfortunately, fake e-mails are on the way again, allegedly from our web hosting provider partner DomainFactory (DF.eu), which of course is not true.

The criminal purpose of the e-mails is phishing/data theft.

The mails look something like this:

Dear DF.eu customer
We are sorry to inform you that your last session with the domainfactory online service was not terminated properly.
For this reason, we ask you to end the session immediately for your own safety. To prevent your access from being controlled by someone outside of you
Thank you for being a DF.eu customer
Domainfactory customer service

Please never click on such a link. Delete the mail. If in doubt, please call us or send us an e-mail.

If you have already clicked on one of the links contained therein, please carry out a virus scan on the corresponding end device.

DF.eu does not send such e-mails (and unfortunately cannot prevent this, as the sender is forged) and the content is technical nonsense.
