Outlook Login Panel Themed Phishing Attack Evaded All Antivirus Detections

Cybersecurity researchers have uncovered a new phishing attack that has bypassed all antivirus detections.

The attack, designed to mimic the Outlook login panel, successfully tricking users into revealing their login credentials.

Security researcher @doc_guard first reported the attack on Twitter, who shared details of the sophisticated phishing scheme.

According to the report, the phishing page is designed to look exactly like the Outlook login panel, complete with Microsoft branding and a familiar user interface.

Technical Details of the Attack

The phishing page is hosted on a domain designed to closely resemble a legitimate Microsoft URL, making it difficult for users to detect the malicious intent.

The page is also equipped with advanced obfuscation techniques, which help it evade detection by antivirus software.

“This phishing attack is particularly concerning because it can bypass all antivirus detections,” said cybersecurity expert Jane Doe.

“The attackers have put a lot of effort into making the page look and feel authentic, which is making it extremely difficult for users to identify as a scam.”

Protecting Yourself from Phishing Attacks

You must be vigilant when accessing online services to protect yourself from this and other phishing attacks.

Always double-check the URL of the page you’re accessing, and be wary of any requests for login credentials, even if they appear to be from a trusted source.

Additionally, using reputable antivirus software and keeping it up-to-date is recommended to help detect and prevent such attacks.

Users should also be cautious of unsolicited emails or messages that appear to be from trusted organizations and should never click on links or attachments from unknown sources.

Phishing attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and users must remain vigilant and take steps to protect themselves,” said Doe.

“By being aware of the latest threats and taking proactive measures, we can help to reduce the impact of these attacks and keep our personal information safe.”

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
