Being aware of how people try to get your confidential data.
what kind of idiot gets phished?
[…]Phia wonders what kind of person falls for phishing attacks. Is it only insanely gullible luddites, or can smart, tech savvy people get phished, too? To find out, she conducts an experiment on her poor, unsuspecting coworkers.
Gophish is a phishing framework that makes the simulation of real-world phishing attacks dead-simple. The idea behind gophish is simple – make industry-grade phishing training available to everyone.
Evilginx is an attack framework for setting up phishing pages. Instead of serving templates of sign-in pages lookalikes, Evilginx becomes a relay between the real website and the phished user. Phished user interacts with the real website, while Evilginx captures all the data being transmitted between the two parties.
Evilginx, being the man-in-the-middle, captures not only usernames and passwords, but also captures authentication tokens sent as cookies. Captured authentication tokens allow the attacker to bypass any form of 2FA enabled on user’s account (except for U2F – more about it further below).
Even if phished user has 2FA enabled, the attacker, outfitted with just a domain and a VPS server, is able to remotely take over his/her account. It doesn’t matter if 2FA is using SMS codes, mobile authenticator app or recovery keys.
