It’s fitting that National Security Awareness Month ends on Halloween. It’s the time to contemplate scary things, whether ghouls, men in lederhosen stumbling about with steins or the real deal, phishing emails loaded with ransomware.

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.

It is not uncommon for threat actors to deploy malicious payloads from multiple malware families during a single phishing campaign. These malware tools may include ransomware, a financial crimes trojan, or other botnet malware. However, it is not as common for those attackers to deploy different malware tools based upon the geographic location of their victim.
Anti-phishing, like all security, is a team sport. (Apologies for that metaphor, but football season is here.)
