Video conferencing tech has been a lifeline for businesses, helping them sustain operations and communications amid the surreal events of 2020. But this sudden reliance was a vulnerability that some were ready to exploit.
Inky has reported a new phishing attack designed to confuse Secure Email Gateways (SEG). The attack is using hidden text to stop the SEG rejecting the email as fraudulent. It is also taking advantage of the Unicode Soft Hyphen feature to hide the displayed text from the SEG engine. The result is that the email is delivered to the user, looks like a legitimate email and is likely to be successful at harvesting user credentials.
