Trend of Lazy Phishing
It's interesting that while in some ways, Phishing is becoming more advanced but on the other side of the same coin I continue to see lazy phishing such as this one during Incident Response investigations.  So many of them use frameworks that are meant to be deployed and then destroyed.  While investigating, it's not uncommon to see directory listing and other web service configuration issues that allow the responder to see captured credentials, etc.  Sites such as https://phishapi.com are a great way to quickly spin up a fake looking landing page which alerts when credentials are captured, so there's really no excuse for lazy phishing with today's toolsets.

Krebs FTW
> "Terms such as "phishtank," "google," "trendmicro," and "sucuri.net" in the client hostname will result in the exploit kit sending the client to a 404 Not Found page rather than the impersonated Microsoft login site."

I remember reading some time ago of malicious sites that scan for files with certain keywords in them to achieve this same goal.

One of the terms, funnily enough, was "brian krebs".

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
