News Tech: Researchers discovered late last week that hackers had been using their coding skills to create phishing pages on Amazon Web Services.
According to Jeremy Fuchs, a cybersecurity research analyst at Avanan, a Check Point firm, this attack shows how legitimate websites are still being used to host phishing pages. According to Fuchs, hackers have had success inserting phishing pages or links into legitimate-looking websites.
Avanan researchers described how delivering a link to a phishing page via email has evolved into a method of getting users to submit their credentials without being detected in a blog post published on Thursday.
Avanan informed AWS of the problem and promised to update its blog with any new details.
According to Ryan McCurdy, vice president of marketing at Bolster, Inc., attackers prefer to appear trustworthy, thus it is in their best interest to create a similar-looking domain with a respectable hosting company.
