The “Democratization” of phishing worldwide
Phishing attacks worldwide have worsened due to a recent development in cybercrime—phishing kits. These kits, designed for launching devastating phishing attacks, are inexpensive and easily accessible in the underground economy, available to anyone who wants to acquire them.
Our whitepaper addresses the urgent need to understand this evolving threat landscape. We explore how phishing kits have transformed the phishing landscape by removing the technical skillset barrier that previously limited the number of potential attackers. With a lower threshold now in place, the increase in bad actors launching phishing attacks is responsible for the exploding number of reported attacks worldwide.
