What was once a seldom deployed attack has now become commonplace. Spearphishing emails are hard to spot because they typically don’t include typical “danger” indicators like attachments, links to click, or files to download. Worse still, they look like they come from someone you trust, with short well-written messages, and with a signature you recognize. If you fall for it, the endgame is either a money transfer or your login credentials being stolen. Or both.
