New rules are being created automatically in Outlook


You notice that you are not receiving some email messages and that rules are being created automatically in Microsoft Outlook. These rules delete any incoming email in which the subject or body contains certain words such as the following:
  • Virus
  • Phishing
  • Hack
  • Phish


These rules were created by a hacking group to prevent compromised users from receiving messages that inform them that their email account may be compromised.


Manually delete these rules, and report the issue to your organization's security team.
