Recent research has shown changes in the effectiveness of various phishing attacks.
Cofense, previously PhishMe, issued a report based on 1,400 clients in 23 industries in more than 50 countries that notes that 7.5 million phishing emails were reported in 2017 alone. But the effectiveness of phishing campaigns has shifted.
In prior research, users were most emotionally motivated to open emails that made them feel a sense of urgency, fear or opportunity. Those three emotional motivators have now been replaced with entertainment, social and reward/recognition.

At the end of each year, the organizations publishing dictionaries release terms that will be included in their next editions. Terms that would have been nonsensical just years ago become commonplace. One word has been hiding just below the surface of our everyday conversation. It is terrifying in terms of scope and mortifying in terms of transmission. I speak of the word “ransomware.”

News this week that a series of cyberattacks and data breaches at North American law firms in 2015 was worse than initially reported (isn't that always the case?) was seemingly timed with the release of a bevy of new articles and information sheets on cybersecurity by our staff.

We wanted to inform you of a serious security breach at Yahoo!
Earlier today, Yahoo! issued a press release stating that 500 million users' accounts were breached in a 2014 hack of their systems. Account information accessed includes usernames and passwords, security questions and answers and other confidential user information.
Yahoo! said in the press release that:
A recent investigation by Yahoo! Inc. has confirmed that a copy of certain user account information was stolen from the company's network in late 2014 by what it believes is a state-sponsored actor. The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers. The ongoing investigation suggests that stolen information did not include unprotected passwords, payment card data, or bank account information; payment card data and bank account information are not stored in the system that the investigation has found to be affected. Based on the ongoing investigation, Yahoo! believes that information associated with at least 500 million user accounts was stolen and the investigation has found no evidence that the state-sponsored actor is currently in Yahoo's network.
If you were a victim of the attack, we encourage you to review these steps you can take to file a report and help protect yourself from identity theft.
Yahoo! also recommends – as we do, too – that users take advantage of two-factor authentication to provide an extra layer of security to their Yahoo! accounts.
Yahoo! is not what we would consider a best-of-breed solution for email or other business matters. If you would like to discuss more enterprise-level, law firm standard solutions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1.800.541.0450, and one of our professional Account Executives will be happy to discuss security and file sharing with you in-depth.
