Barracuda Central is detecting a variety of tax-related phishing emails. These emails are designed to look like official communications from the IRS or similar tax revenue entities outside of the US. Most of the emails we have detected include links in the body of the message. These links are designed to phish for the victim's info or to install malicious content on the victim's computer. All of these emails have the same agenda of tricking people into clicking on the malicious links.
