In this week’s phishing activity report, we saw a small increase (>2%) in overall phishing activity for the top 20 brands we’re tracking, grouped by industry. Social Networks (>100%), Email Providers (>85%), and Computer Hardware (>70%) saw the biggest increases in activity. Only two industries saw decreases in phishing activity; Internet Search & Navigation Services (>5%) and Internet and Information Services (>4%).

Our Phishing Report offers a snapshot into the weekly trends of the top industries that are being targeted by phishing attacks. By pulling information from major ISPs, partners, clients, feeds, and our own proprietary honeypots and web crawlers, we are able to get a 360-degree view of the phishing landscape. The percentages posted on our blog are based on the sum of the phishing threats of the top 20 brands, and do not include anything below the top 20 threshold.
