Package Delivery! Cybercriminals at Your Doorstep (Security Intelligence)


IBM X-Force Red investigated how cybercriminals might seek to exploit package deliveries to hack into corporate or personal home networks right from the office mailroom or someone’s front door. Think of the volume of boxes moving through a corporate mailroom daily. Or, consider the packages dropped off on the porch of a CEO’s home, sitting within range of their home Wi-Fi. Using warshipping, X-Force Red infiltrate corporate networks undetected. The aim was to help educate customers about security blind spots and modern ways adversaries can disrupt their business operations or steal sensitive data.
