The increased usage of access control and sophisticated detection evasion strategies are the two main phishing trends that have been noticed. The prevalence of evasive strategies, like antibot methods and randomization, makes it difficult for traditional detection systems to keep up and lengthens the duration of phishing campaigns.
In 2022, 3,677 distinct phishing kits were discovered, which is 25% higher than in 2021. A phishing kit is a collection of tools that online thieves can use to construct and manage numerous phishing pages simultaneously. These are helpful tools for threat actors because they make it simple for attackers to set up and manage the infrastructure required to run extensive phishing campaigns, switch hosts in the event of blockage, and gather stolen data.
