5 tips to avoid spear-phishing attacks – Naked Security


The word “Burisma” is all over the news at the moment – it’s a Ukranian energy company that, according to some claims, was broken into by Russian hackers looking for sensitive data to steal.

As you can imagine, the way the hackers got in is supposed to have been by means of phishing attacks.

Phishing, very briefly defined, is where a cybercriminal tricks you into revealing something electronically that you ought to have kept to yourself.

The good news is that most of us have learned to spot obvious phishing attacks these days.

The bad news is that you can’t reliably spot phishing attacks just by watching out for obvious mistakes, or by relying on the crooks saying “Dear Customer” rather than using your name.

You need to watch out for targeted phishing, often rather pointedly called spear-phishing, where the crooks make a genuine effort to tailor each phishing email, for example by customising it both to you and to your company.
