Battling Supermutants in the Phishing Wasteland

02 Jun 2020, 10:40 - 11:05

Tech Talks

Phishing attacks are nothing new or unusual, and yet, the menace they pose is often overlooked in lieu of flashier malware, APTs, and 0-day exploits. This talk will discuss the state of modern phishing, delving into the economy of phishing, and detailing the roles within this economy and why it presents such a risk to organizations. Using RPG-style stat cards to highlight author strengths and weaknesses,  we will then present our research on three phishing kit authors, break down their offerings, and discuss what it takes to run a successful phishing kit empire.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Gain an understanding of the modern phishing attack landscape, as it relates to the overall threat landscape
  2. Gain an understanding of the economy of the underground phishing economy, and the roles within it
  3. Gain an understanding of how phishing kit authors run their operations, and what within this operation can be utilized in preventative measures against phishing
  4. Learn about the technical details of three phishing kits, and how attacks leveraging these kits can be protected against
  5. Learn about a model for phishing kit research that will be beneficial in securing their organization
