Highlight's agency "There is a lot of damage from impersonation email malware"
Group Highlight's agency requested caution regarding the distribution of impersonation emails.

On the 4th, Highlight's agency, Around Us Entertainment, announced on its official website, "Recently, emails containing a large amount of malicious code have been being sent impersonating Around Us."

He continued, "In particular, we are informing you of the fact that many cases have been identified that impersonate Aroundus and confuse recipients with provocative email titles or body content such as 'Related to image copyright infringement' or 'Sue pending', leading them to open the email." He said.

The agency announced, "In addition to sending emails through the official domain, we will not sue fans unless they intentionally harm the artist's image or take personal advantage through the official image."

He added, "There is only one email address confirmed so far, but since the distribution of malicious code through email is frequent these days, additional impersonation emails using other addresses may be distributed, so we ask fans to be careful."

Around Us is a company founded by Highlight members in 2016. In particular, in April, Highlight announced that it had concluded an agreement on the use of the trademark rights to the team name BEAST. He said, "I am thrilled to be able to show the team name 'BEAST' separately from the activity name. I hope this news will be a meaningful gift for the fans and the highlight of our 15th anniversary."

Below is the full text of Around Us’ official position.

hello,

Around Us Ent. no see.

Recently, emails containing a large amount of malicious code have been being sent impersonating Aroundus.

In particular, we are informing you of the fact that many cases have been identified that impersonate Aroundus and confuse recipients with provocative email titles or body content such as 'Image copyright infringement related' or 'Complaint in progress', leading them to open the email.

Around Us not only sends emails through the official domain, but we do not sue fans unless the artist's image is intentionally harmed or the official image is used for personal gain.

There is only one email address confirmed so far, but as the spread of malicious code through email is frequent these days, additional impersonation emails using other addresses may be distributed, so fans must be careful.

Please take care of your health during this hot summer.
