Expect More Travel-Related Phishing as the Pandemic Subsides
People need to be wary of travel-related phishing as the pandemic draws to a close, according to Fleming Shi, Chief Technology Officer at Barracuda Networks. On the CyberWire’s Hacking Humans podcast, Shi explained that phishing campaigns take advantage of current trends. Currently, many phishing attacks are themed around the demand for vaccines. As pandemic-related restrictions begin to lift, there will presumably be a major demand for travel as people are finally able to take vacations, and attackers will jump on this opportunity.
