“The campaign is using landing pages signed by SSL certificates, to create legitimate-looking Microsoft Office 365 login pages,” "It quickly detects mobile devices and logs keystrokes directly as they are entered in the password field. Simultaneously, the JavaScript code logic on the phishing pages delivers device-specific content based on the device the victim uses."
