Phishing With Open Redirects | Cyber Protection Operation Center News

A large credential phishing campaign that is using open redirector links to bypass security software is currently underway according to Microsoft.
Phishing continually shows itself to be an effective means of spreading malware with some 91% of all cyberattacks originating in email.
This latest campaign couples well-known branding, such as Zoom, with open redirect links to lure individuals into interacting with links. These links further redirect users to CAPTCHA verification pages with adds an air of legitimacy and then prompts users for credentials.

Attacks like this are rendered ineffective with Acronis Advanced Email Security which already recognizes this malicious pattern. Acronis Cyber Protect’s built-in URL filter also blocks malicious websites from loading.
