Inbound Email Security Threat

Detect Attacks Exploiting Email Attachments

What is Malicious Attachment?

A malicious attachment refers to a file attached to an email body that serves a malicious purpose. These files are used to deliver malware to the recipient’s system or perform malicious activities. For example, malicious email attachments propagated through emails can contain various types of malicious software, such as ransomware, Trojans, spyware, adware, and more.

Attackers lure or deceive users into opening these malicious attachments. When a user opens such a file, malicious code may be executed or installed on their system, posing a security threat.

Attack Pathways of Malicious Attachments

The malicious attachment is included in an email, which is then sent to the recipient’s email address. The email is received through the recipient’s email server.
The recipient opens the email and attempts to click on or download the attached file. These attachments can take various forms, such as document files, images, compressed files, or executable files.
When the recipient executes or opens the malicious attachment, the embedded malicious code is activated. This code typically aims to gain access to the recipient’s computer system or perform other malicious activities.
If the malicious code successfully runs on the recipient’s computer system, it leads to an infection. The nature of this infection can vary, and in the case of ransomware, it may involve encrypting files and demanding a decryption key or engaging in other malicious activities.
Malicious code often attempts to spread to other systems through the recipient’s computer and network, aiming to infect more systems.
