Critical Threat and Consumer Intel for This Year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday
Last year, consumers stuffed e-commerce cash registers with a record $6.2 billion in online sales over Thanksgiving weekend—a 23% percent increase over 2017. With that number expected to set another record this year, cyber threat actors are looking to impersonate the most trafficked e-commerce sites, taking advantage of unsafe online consumer habits to get their piece of the pie.
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* and five of the leading e-tailers in the UK. We also conducted a survey of 1,000 consumers about their attitudes and habits regarding safe online shopping.
The results show that Black Friday can be a feast for cyber threat actors.
