#BHUSA Researchers Present Deep Sea Phishing Exercise

Using data science, cybersecurity researchers have released a new approach that makes automated phishing exploits almost as fruitful as typically more time-consuming spear-phishing methods. Presenting at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas, John Seymour, data scientist, and Philip Tully, senior data scientist, both with ZeroFOX, discussed how they used a combination of traditional natural language processing, histograms, and parsing information from user profiles to build a much more effective automated phishing campaign. “Machine learning can be used offensively to automate spear phishing,” says Tully, as he presented the session “Weaponizing Data Science for Social Engineering: Automated E2E Spear Phishing”. Phishing, and more targeted, time-consuming spear phishing, typically land at or near the top of any list of IT security concerns, Seymour points out, which is what drove these white-hat…
