Harmony Protects against new phishing attack missed by Microsoft and Proofpoint

Avanan’s research team recently discovered a new phishing attack in the wild that involves sending an email with malformed URLs to bypass the URL protection and rewriting features of email security solutions.

  • Harmony provides complete protection against this attack, while other vendors, namely Microsoft Defender and Proofpoint, expose the end user to the malicious links
  • Since the links have not been secured, the user then goes straight to the phishing/malicious site when using MS Office Defender or Proofpoint to secure his mailbox.
  • Check Avanan’s blog HERE for the full write-up
  • This provides a specific example of how Harmony provides superior protection against phishing attacks. This is proven with actual data research here
  • See below for a recreation of this exploit, as well as how Harmony protects against it.

 

Here it is in action
