Phishing Activity: TOP TARGETS

Week of May 14 – May 20, 2017

Weekly Phishing Activity: May 22, 2017This week, we saw a decrease in phishing activity for the top 20 brands we’re tracking, grouped by industry. Overall activity increased >5%. The industry with the biggest increase was the same as last week, Internet Search and Navigation Services at >65%, followed by Storage and Systems Management Software at >30% and Electronic Payment Systems at >25%.

The industries with the biggest decreases in phishing activity were Computer Hardware (>15%), Banking (>10%), and Social Networks (>10%).

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.
