Spear-phishing is a huge concern for today’s government and enterprises. While high profile attacks like last week’s spear-phishing attack against the White House and last year’s attack against Oak Ridge National Laboratory underscore the risk to government agencies, today’s businesses are also a primary victim. Hackers are increasingly looking to steal source code, intellectual property and financial information.
In light of these incidents, Websense® Security Labs™ collected data from the Websense ThreatSeeker® Network and analyzed it using Websense ACE (Advanced Classification Engine) to identify the top trends in phishing today. These include:
- Dramatic shifts in attack strategy
- New security evasion tactics
- An evolution of the targeted threat model
