Kinsta, a prominent provider known for its high-performance solutions, has become the target of a sophisticated phishing campaign utilizing Google Ads.

In an email sent to its customers, Kinsta said it has identified that the attackers are leveraging Google Ads, targeting individuals who have previously visited Kinsta’s official websites. The threat actors create sponsored websites that closely mimic Kinsta’s, tricking users into clicking on them.

“We are writing to alert you to a phishing scam where attackers use fraudulent sites to gather MyKinsta login credentials,” Kinsta noted in an email seen by BleepingComputer.

“The attackers are using Google Ads to target people who have visited kinsta.com or my.kinsta.com. The sponsored websites are dangerous, and you should not click on any links with URLs other than kinsta.com or access fraudulent sites in any way.”
