The goal of phishing emails

Phishing emails come in all shapes and forms, there are however a common set of goals which can be used to identify what type of attack is taking place. These goals typically take the form of credential harvesting, endpoint compromise or reply-to attacks. Armed with the understanding of what goal the attacker has, you can then identify the techniques the attacker is using to trick its target into responding to the phish.

For credential harvesting, an attacker will craft a phishing email that contains links or buttons linking to a malicious phishing website. For endpoint compromise, an attacker will craft a phishing email that contains a malicious attachment. For reply-to attacks, an attacker will craft a phishing email that attempts to have the victim respond to them. Ultimately, all forms of phishing attacks have a malicious goal and intention behind them.

Equipped with this information, take a look at our free phishing email templates and see if you can spot the goals behind them!
