Javvad Malik, Security Awareness Advocate, KnowBe4:

“As anti- technologies get better, the criminals are also changing their techniques to bypass these controls. Hijacking 404 sites is a particularly clever technique. Other devious methods have included placing the malicious page behind a benign captcha page.

While the anti-phishing technologies get better, there will always be a gap between what can be detected and evolving attacks. Fortunately, the human side of the equation remains relatively static, with phishers relying on manipulating people into clicking links or taking other actions that are not in their organisation’s best interests. Which is why it is vital that good security awareness and training is layered into every organisations’ security strategy.”
