SecureList article on tax scams

Kaspersky’s Nadezhda Demidova contributes an exhaustive article on tax scams – all too familiar a topic at this time of year: Tax refund, or How to lose your remaining cash

Summary: “Every year, vast numbers of people around the globe relish the delightful prospect of filling out tax returns, applying for tax refunds, etc. Given that tax authorities and their taxpayers are moving online, it’s no surprise to find cybercriminals hard on their heels.”

Specifically addresses information relevant to the US, Canada, UK and France as well as other countries.

Some other relevant (older) articles from ESET – other vendors and blogs are available, but I can lay hands on these easily for obvious reasons. (In fact, I’ve just been looking them up for an ESET-related project.)  🙂
