Vishing attacks have increased almost 550 percent over the last twelve months, according to Agari and PhishLabs’ Quarterly Threat Trends & Intelligence Report.
The May report uses hundreds of thousands of phishing and social media threats analyzed and mitigated by Agari and PhishLabs, both of which are part of the Fortra cybersecurity portfolio. By identifying and mitigating attacks targeting enterprises, their employees, and brands, we are able to provide insight into key trends within the threat landscape.
Key Findings of the Quarterly Threat Trends & Intelligence Report Include:
- Brand Impersonation attacks on social media are up 339% in one year
- The average overall number of social media attacks per target increased 105% from Q1 2021 to Q1 2022
- Qbot is the top ransomware payload for the second consecutive quarter. Emotet attacks have surged to represent the second leading payload
- Q1 2022 phishing volume is less volatile and grew nearly 5% over Q1 2021 (plus more)
