Viewing Phish with a Payload using PhishMe Intelligence and Maltego


Visualize Phishing Relationships with PhishMe Intelligence™ and Maltego

Fishing (without the “P”) is not a lot of fun when you just drop a line in the water and hope for the best. When fishermen want to see where the fish are, they look to the fish finder on the bridge to “look underwater” to find schools of fish. Similarly, when an analyst is looking to “catch” a phishing campaign, correlating the attacker’s campaigns and their payloads can benefit by being able to visually graph and link phishing threats. PhishMe Intelligence combined with Maltego can deliver the “phish finder” that an analyst needs.
