Don’t Be Santa Claus to Criminals This Cyber Monday

November 27, 2017

While the whole Black Friday through Cyber Monday long weekend is expected to yield a big bounty for retailers, it’s also (unfortunately) the most wonderful time of the year for cybercriminals. If a recent survey by DomainTools is any indication, odds are that you either know someone, or you are someone, who has been taken in by a phishing attack.

Even though 91 percent of U.S. consumers in the survey declared themselves phishing-aware, nearly 2 in 5 have clicked on a bad link, with various results, none of them good. The phishin’ hole is deeply stocked, too: 92% of us shop online regularly, and around half of us will be filling those carts on Black Monday. These kinds of statistics are music to criminals’ ears.
