Microsoft Office 365 Phishing Attack Uses Multiple CAPTCHAs

  • Researchers are warning of an ongoing Office 365 credential-phishing attack that’s targeting the hospitality industry – and using visual CAPTCHAs to avoid detection and appear legitimate.
  • “Phishing is the most prevalent attack vector affecting enterprises,” said researchers. “These attacks take advantage of our inherent cognitive biases and fool us into entering our credentials. That bias, combined with the tactics used by attackers, make these attacks very successful.”
