Menlo Imposter Threat Detection Flags Payloadless Attacks that Impersonate Senior Executives and Other VIPs
Cyberattacks aren’t always delivered via a payload such as a link to a malicious URL or an infected file attachment. Rather than trick users into downloading malicious content, attacks without payloads—otherwise known as imposter threats—use fake communications to get victims to carry out risky behavior, often offline. These fakes include emails such as phony government requests for a Social Security number, a relative’s plea for a wire transfer, a request from the boss to release proprietary business information or, more recently, give up personal information in exchange for health information and remedies about Covid-19.
