New phishing campaign exploits the “storage limit” lure. Cybercrime actors send an email, impersonating the help desk, about a problem on the account space limits.

According the message, the email-box is full and an action is required to restore it, opening a link tailored to the victim. In fact, it leads to a fake login page where the user’s address is already entered.
