IKEA has warned its employees of an ongoing cyberattack that uses stolen reply-chain emails to target internal corporate inboxes.

Other IKEA organizations, suppliers, and business partners are also targeted in the same attack, the email states. A malicious email may come from someone the recipient knows or works with, or it could arrive as a reply to an ongoing conversation, making it hard to detect.
