I received an email today from a self claimed hacker group saying they hacked into my cloud storage. I am pretty sure this is a scam, but I still wanted to ask if I should be concerned about this or not.

    Dear,

    I'm researching a ransomware which is sent via email. My research will be published in Vietnam to increase digital security awareness. So i hope that you can forward me this email for researching.

    Regard,
    Tizme

    Hello Anthony,

    Yes, your assumptions are 100% accurate - this is a perfect example of a phishing/scam email. Crooks merely attempt to extract money from unsuspecting recipients by sending such deceptive emails to hundreds of thousands of email addresses. You have nothing to worry about.
