The Google Docs Phishing Scam as Mock Phish Scenario

The Google Docs Phishing Attack was highly efficient in the wild. LUCY delivers a Mock Phish scenario based on this attack. The scenario has functions that are not possible with competing products.

The Google Docs Phishing scam in May 2017 was a really efficient one. The google docs phish affected 0.1% of the gmail users. So 1 million accounts (out of approx 1 billion) were affected. That’s why we delivered such a mock phish scenario in LUCY Server:

Google Docs Phishing Scheme as TemplateThe Goggle Docs Phishing SimulationSomeone has shared a document on Goggle Docs with the recipient. This attack template offers a web based login and a download section for a Office-Document with a Macro. The download can be tracked and the Macro additionally reports back to LUCY upon opening.

We’re especially proud of this scenrio not only because it reflects the latest attack. The special thing is that

a.) It goes a step further than the real attack: It contains a custom word file which is compiled in LUCY. And

b.) LUCY-Server is able to track more risk levels than any other competitor product:

  • Link click
  • Submitting credentials
  • Downloading Document
  • Opening Document (Other solutions cannot track this 😉 )
