Outbound Email Security Threat

Prevent Unauthorized Access Attempts to the Mail Server

What is Unauthorized Access to the Mail Server?

Unauthorized access to the mail server refers to an attacker gaining access to a mail server without permission or through illegal means. This signifies an illicit intrusion into the mail server.

  • It means that an attacker has attempted or successfully gained unauthorized access to the mail server. This usually indicates attempts by hackers or malicious users to access the mail server without the administrator’s approval.
  • Such access attempts may have malicious intent, such as trying to gain unauthorized access to the mail server or attempting to steal data. This can include accessing email messages, contacts, business data, and sensitive information.
  • If an attacker gains access to the mail server, they may use it with the purpose of email account hijacking or stealing important data. This could lead to data breaches, personal information exposure, phishing attacks, or as a precursor to attacks targeting businesses or individuals.

Intrusion Pathways of Unauthorized Email Server Access

Scanning and Identification
Attackers first scan the target email server in an attempt to identify vulnerabilities. This process involves searching for security flaws or weaknesses in the mail server that can be exploited to gain access.
Exploitation of Vulnerabilities
Upon discovering vulnerabilities, attackers attempt to exploit these weaknesses to gain access to the email server. This is often done using malicious code, hacking techniques, or other attack tools.
Privilege Escalation
Once the attacker gains access to the email server, they seek to escalate their privileges. This allows the attacker to access more system resources and data.
Gathering of Information
Attackers primarily aim to collect email data, contacts, business information, or sensitive data after gaining access to the email server. This information can be used for subsequent attacks.
Persistence and Attack
Attackers strive to maintain access to the server and may conduct additional attacks. These additional attacks can include phishing campaigns, spam distribution, data manipulation, or ransomware deployment, among others.
