According to Network World, Intrepidus Group has added e-mail attachments to its anti-phishing training system.
The original system allows companies to emulate attacks, tracking the ability of each individual using the program to recognize specific attacks and then providing instant feedback that sharpens users' responses. Now, with the PhishMe Malware Edition, e-mail attachments are added into the mix. Intrepidus CEO Rohyt Belani says,
"The typical scenario is to send a handful of employees of the target organization a legitimate looking, spear phishing e-mail and lure them to either click on a hyperlink in the e-mail that points to a website hosting malware, or open a file attached to the e-mail that infects the local system."
