I was very busy organizing the second edition of RomHack, the free cyber security conference made with ❤ by Cyber Saiyan – the non-profit organization I founded 2 years ago – that took place in Rome past 28th of September.
We had an incredible lineup with italian and international speakers coming from around the world and 400 attendees. Not just the conference; at the end of the conf 16 team played the on site Capture The Flag.
Phishing is a common attack characterized by simplicity and effectiveness; phishing emails are used to drop malware, cryptolocker, steal credentials… and they are successfull just because Dave. I suggest reading this page to understand “the existing forms of phishing attacks and the currently available mitigations“.
Companies – hopefully – train their employees with internal phishing campaigns; in this post I show how we can build a simple office document that – once opened – sends information to an external server. We can use the document – along with Gophish or other tools – to build our own phishing campaign and test our organization exposure to phishing, teaching people and rising awareness.
