Block Email Spoofing

What is Email Spoofing?

Email spoofing refers to the technique or process of manipulating email header information or sender addresses in such a way that it misleads the email recipient into falsely believing the sender’s identity or the origin of the email. Spoofing can degrade the safety of the email communication, and can be utilized in various forms of cyberattacks including spam, phishing attacks, and malware delivery.

Typically, email spoofing leads to attempts to have achieve malicious objectives through email subjects, body text, attachments, or links. Spoofed emails may trick the recipient to open an email or click a link under someone’s authority, potentially resulting in consequences such as data breach, financial loss, or malware infection.

Threat Pathways of Email Spoofing

Header Forgery
The attacker uses an email client or script to modify or manipulate the email’s header section, which includes the sender’s email address, email subject, recipient list, and other message details.
Spoofing Sender Address
Commonly, the attacker forges the email sender’s address to make the email look like it’s coming from a specific organization, company, or individual. This is done to gain the recipient’s trust by appearing as a trusted sender.
Phishing Attacks
The attacker alters the email’s content, often used for phishing (fraud) attacks. For example, they might disguise themselves as a bank and prompt the recipient to input sensitive information or redirect them to a malicious website.
Fake Delivery Paths
The attacker manipulates the email’s delivery path to hide the message’s true source or obscure the actual delivery route, making it challenging to trace the email’s origin.
Message ID Alteration
The message ID is a unique identifier for the email, and the attacker can change it to make the email appear as if it was originally sent from a legitimate mail server.
Inserting Duplicate Headers
Attackers can insert duplicate headers to modify the message and route it to evade security mechanisms.
