-- Denver Property Management today announced that a malicious email spoofing campaign that made victims of both recipients and the company last week has been stopped. At this point, details about the campaign were not released by the police, but the company has been working with authorities to determine how it happened, and what measures if any can be taken in the future to prevent it from happening again. “The situation is under control,” said Denver Property Managment founder and president Grant Van Der Jagt, “and for that we can all be thankful.” He added, “unfortunately, the hacker found a vulnerable email server somewhere and was able to tamper with the message sent to make it look like it came from us.”
Denver Property Management made it clear that no client information was in jeopardy at any time, and that the mailing list used by the hacker was apparently a standard one used by spammers. Fortunately, no one seems to have been adversely affected by the messages, other than the nuisance associated with such emails. There has been no report of users getting a virus by clicking on the any attachments. If you should be the recipient of one of these messages, police suggest that delete they message immediately. To report a spoofed email, call Arapahoe County Sherriff's Department at 303-795-4711 and refer to case number CT 146570.
