Can hackers spoof an email address on your own domain?
Are you aware that one of the first things hackers try is to see if they can spoof the email address of your CEO? If they are able to commit “CEO Fraud“, penetrating your network is like taking candy from a baby.
Now they can launch a “CEO fraud” spear-phishing attack on your organization, and that type of attack is very hard to defend against, unless your users are highly ‘security awareness’ trained. Once the bad guys know they can spoof any email address, this is the next thing they do:
Once they have all publicly available email addresses, the fun starts. The more of your email addresses that are floating out there, the bigger your attack footprint is, and the higher the risk is. It’s often a surprise how many addresses are actually out there. Now they can send all employees an email supposedly coming from Human Resources, the CEO or perhaps the mail room, and social engineer your users to click on a link. Would you like to know if hackers can spoof your domain?
