Microsoft Impersonated Most Out Of Nearly 350 Brands: Abnormal Security

Abnormal Security has published its latest Abnormal Intelligence, which has detected 350+ brand impersonation attacks over the past year, analyzing brand and credential phishing attack trends in the first half of 2023 with generative AI increasing the threat. 

Mike Britton, CISO at Abnormal Security, unveils the top 10 most popular brand impersonations in 2023, with Microsoft taking the lead as the top most phishing brand, followed by PayPal, Facebook, DocuSign, Intuit, DHL, McAfee, Google, Amazon, and Oracle. 

Brand impersonation is an increasingly threatened vector with the increase in reliance on generative AI tools. Abnormal recently stopped an attack that impersonates DHL, which looks legitimate, and asks the target to click the link to pay a delivery fee, which is required due to unpaid customs duties. Upon doing so, the recipient would have their credit card information stolen by the phishing site.
