Crucial Threat Intel for This Year’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday Shopping Weekend
Last year, consumers stuffed e-commerce cash registers with more than $19.6 billion in sales through the Black Friday weekend—a more than 15 percent increase over 2016.
With that number expected to grow this year, threat actors are looking to take advantage. To analyze the methods these cybercriminals will employ this Black Friday and Cyber Monday and where they’re targeting their malicious efforts, RiskIQ ran a keyword query of our Global Blacklist and mobile app database focusing on the ten most trafficked sites during Black Friday 2017 and five of the leading e-tailers in the UK.
In the app space, we looked for instances of the brand names used in malicious and fraudulent mobile apps. In our Global blacklist, we searched for examples of each brand name appearing alongside the term “Black Friday” in the malicious URL or cause page URL.
The results show that Black Friday is a feast for threat actors.
