Phishing Activity: TOP TARGETS

Week of September 4 – September 10, 2016


In this week’s phishing report, we saw a >15% increase in overall phishing activity for the top 20 brands we’re tracking, grouped by industry. eCommerce (~30%), Storage and Systems Management Software (>25%), and Internet Search and Navigation Services (>20%) saw the biggest increases. Computer Hardware saw the largest decrease (>20%).

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.
