The latest vector in email attacks is credential stealing. This is nothing new, but there has been a serious increase of activity in this space and it is VERY successful. Why? Because they criminals are manning the phishing campaigns with live people who are logging into people’s Internet facing systems without 2-Factor Authentication and sending out more campaigns. Better yet, they are sending it to recent contacts, in small amounts so people are falling for it since they are actively, or have recently communicated with the victim giving the phishing campaign legitimacy.
