Phishers who breached Twilio and fooled Cloudflare could easily get you, too

Quick Summary

Unusually resourced threat actor has targeted multiple companies in recent days.

Cloudflare said that three of its employees fell for the phishing scam, but that the company's use of hardware-based MFA keys prevented the would-be intruders from accessing its internal network.

The threat actor then used that access to data in an undisclosed number of customer accounts.
