Phishing Trends Position ISPs to Protect Subscribers (Akamai Blog)


Akamai just released the 2019 State of the Internet security report: Phishing – Baiting the Hook featuring findings from the enterprise and carrier research teams. They’ve been collaborating for two years to develop better methods for evaluating massive volumes of anonymized, live-streamed DNS query data to uncover more phishing, bots and other threats. This new SOTI report has great background on phishing, and the research focuses on phishing kits used to enable landing pages where usernames and passwords or other valuable information are gathered and subsequently monetized to fund phishers’ exploits.
