Phishing threats are not homogeneous in nature. Malicious actors use several different phishing attack topologies to execute their campaigns – each of which require a different approach to detect and mitigate the threat.
Phishing is a “scam” and form of internet fraud, in which bad actors attempt to deceive internet users into unveiling sensitive personal information. In its original and most common form, the attack is initiated via an email purporting to be from a reputable or legitimate source. Inside the email, the attacker urges the victim to act in some way and includes (“hides”) a malicious link. When clicked, that link takes the victim to a fraudulent or compromised webpage. From there, the victim is prompted to enter sensitive personal information (i.e. username, email, password, credit card information, etc.). Phishing webpages can appear nearly identical to their authentic counterparts – often requiring advanced phishing detection solutions to identify the fake. Mobile phishing attacks that take advantage of simplified user interfaces and design choices intended to improve “usability” on smaller devices have become particularly effective.
