Security Alert – April 18, 2013

It has come to Mid America Bank and Trust’s attention that email messages are circulating that resemble CSIeSafe notification messages. Please be advised that these messages contain links to malicious websites. The emails appear to be sent from CSI email addresses; however, technical staff has confirmed that these messages are originating from sources outside of the bank network.

The primary way to identify one of these messages is to hover the mouse over the link—but please DO NOT click the link. As shown in the picture below, the address listed in the pop-up will not match the link embedded in the body of the email*. Since this is a key indicator of a suspicious message, the link is likely malicious and therefore the email is not from the bank.

*The originating source IP address, spoofed email address and links have numerous variations circulating.

If you receive one of these messages, please do not click on any links and delete the message immediately.

Please contact us at 1-800-720-7178 if you have any questions.
