Cybercriminals trying to phish users typically rely on email to compromise unsuspecting victims, and remains the primary mechanism to launch malware attacks. There has been an uptick in activity that has led to more spam messages, along with coordinated spear phishing attacks targeting specific organizations.

 

 

The top brands suffering from phishing attacks and malicious spam: RingCentral, ADP, Her Magesty's Revenue Customs, HSBC, Bank of America, eFax, NatWest, RBS, IRS, Sage, "Court Notice," Lloyds Bank, Wells Fargo, and Broad Oak.

 

"Phishing and malicious spam continue to threaten networks and brands, and as a result, they key question a company needs to ask about the brands listed in this report is, 'Would any of my employees ever respond to an email from one of these brands?' If so, your business may already be infected with malware," said Greg Coticchia, Malcovery Security President and CEO, in a press statement.
