Response From Malaysian Computer Emergency Response Team [MyCERT]

In my previous blog post, I wrote about writing in to MyCERT upon advice from a friend when I wanted to report a couple of phishing emails to a local bank but could not find any quick link for me to do so from the website of the bank.

In all, I received three phishing attempts from “HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad” and “CIMB Bank Berhad”. It was quite obvious to me that these messages were not from the REAL banks even though I have accounts with both banks. I just don’t use this email address for official correspondence. Besides, I have never received any email from banks before except for newsletters.

MyCERT wrote back after three days with the following message:

Thank you for reporting to us on the matter. We had already taken action to notify and advice the respective party accordingly.

Doesn’t seem like much but t least I know that I have done my part. Hopefully, there would not be anyone gullible enough to have responded to the phishing emails!
