We Helped a Customer Block this Open Directory Phishing Attack

On May 22, 2018, the Cofense Phishing Defense Center observed a Microsoft credential phishing attack that was received by one of our Managed Service customers. The Phishing Defense Center’s goal is to provide our customers all the relevant information on an attack against their employees, within an hour of an email being reported, so customers can take the necessary steps to prevent further attacks. By doing a deep dive investigation into this attack we were able to find multiple other phishing attacks listed on the site, the kits used to create the phishing pages, and several other domains created by the same threat actor.
