Phishing continues to increase in 2020, especially with the shift to remote learning, working and playing, converging personal lives, and work on the same device. Globally, phishers are utilizing fake login scams, fraudulent ads, scareware tactics, and rogue software downloads as attack payloads. They are attacking in and outside of email via SMS/iMessage, social networks, videoconferencing, new collaboration, and gaming services, significantly affecting the brands and reputations of businesses, consumers, and service providers alike.
"Millions of people have experienced examples of brand attacks whether it is the scary email scam, to 'change your password' from your bank or the fake 'pick up your package' text message from USPS or Amazon," stated Patrick Harr, CEO of SlashNext.
