Inbound Email Security Threat

Block Malware Within Malicious URLs

What is a Malicious URL?

A malicious URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is one of the web addresses delivered through email, serving the purpose of redirecting users to a specific webpage or connecting to a particular domain. Malicious URLs are used to lure users to phishing sites, prompt them to download malicious software, or perform other malicious actions.

Email attacks using malicious URLs can take various forms.

  • Download and Execution: Malicious URLs can entice users to be redirected to specific web pages or download malicious files. If users download and execute such files, malicious code can be installed on their devices.
  • Access to Malicious Websites: When users access malicious websites via malicious URLs, attackers can exploit security vulnerabilities in web browsers to gain control over the user’s device.

Attack Pathways of Malicious URLs

Sending Phishing Emails
Attackers send out phishing emails to a targeted group of recipients or a broader audience. These emails are often designed to appear as legitimate and trustworthy, using social engineering tactics to increase the likelihood of being opened.
Deceptive Content & Links
Phishing emails contain deceptive content and links that encourage recipients to take specific actions, such as clicking on a link. The content may create a sense of urgency or curiosity to prompt the recipient to click the link.
Inclusion of Malicious URLs
The phishing email includes a malicious URL that directs the user to a website controlled by the attacker. This URL may appear as a legitimate link to a well-known website but actually leads to a malicious destination.
Accessing the Malicious Website
When the recipient clicks on the malicious URL, their web browser is directed to the malicious website. This website may host various forms of malware or engage in further phishing tactics.
Downloading and Executing Malware
Once on the malicious website, the user’s device may be subjected to malware downloads or drive-by downloads, which involve downloading malicious files without the user’s knowledge or consent. This can result in the installation of malware on the user’s system.
