Phishing attacks reached record levels in 2022, with over 4.7 million attacks throughout the year, including 1.35 million in Q4 alone. These figures demonstrate a steady annual growth rate of 150%, emphasizing the unique and alarming rise of phishing activity since 2019.

Cofense’s Q1 2023 Intelligence Trends Review found that loaders remained the most common tool for phishing. Keyloggers and information stealers took second and third place, which is interesting considering that in 2019, almost 74 percent of phishing attacks involved credential phishing (stealing usernames and passwords)

According to Slashnext’s 2022 State of Phishing Report, around 76 percent of all phishing attempts were targeted. Symantec’s Internet Security recent Threat Report found spear-phishing emails to be used by almost two-thirds (65 percent) of all known groups carrying out targeted cyber attacks. The report also tells us that 96 percent of targeted attacks are carried out for the purpose of intelligence gathering.

Zscaler’s ThreatLabs 2023 Phishing Report found that AI tools like ChatGPT could create fake login pages with minimal coding expertise or input from the user. It further suggests that this service could be used to create polymorphic malware or other malicious code.

Symantec combines numbers for various types of email threats, including phishing, email malware, and spam, and reports that employees in smaller organizations are more likely to receive those types of threats. For example, for an organization with 1–250 employees, roughly one in 323 emails will be malicious. For an organization of 1001–1500 employees, the rate is far lower with one in 823 emails being malicious.

Standards like Sender Policy Framework (SPF), DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), and Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC) are all intended to fight the prevalence of SPAM by allowing receiving email servers to authenticate the servers they receive mail from.
