Email Phishing Alert

From the Desk of Andrew Bland – Chief Security Officer

If you receive an email from “www•harlandclarkes•com” (with an ‘s’) OR if it is forwarded to you:

  1. DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY; and
  2. DO NOT CLICK THE LINK PROVIDED; it contains a malicious link. Opening it could risk you downloading a virus.

SITUATION:
On Wednesday, March 7, the Corporate Security Group of Harland Clarke Holdings Corp. became aware that multiple Harland Clarke and Harland Financial Solutions clients had received an email from a sender FRAUDULENTLY claiming to be the iReports Data Warehouse. (A copy of the body of the email is included at the bottom of this email.)

TO REITERATE:
This fraudulent email is NOT originating from any Harland Clarke Holdings business. It appears to be part of a malicious and isolated phishing spam attack.

ACTIONS UNDERWAY:
HCHC’s Corporate Security Group is actively working with IT and business resources within Harland Clarke and Harland Financial Solutions to control and mitigate this attack. This is an isolated incident and has no bearing on your organization’s relationship with any HCHC entity.

Sincerely,

Andrew R. Bland III
Senior Vice President and Chief Security Officer
