Outbound Email Security Threat

Protect from Compromised Account Emails

What is Account Compromise?

Account compromising involves an attacker illegally seizes a user account and exploits it to access other people’s personal information or corporate data.

  • This is typically done through social-engineering attacks using a user’s sensitive information or by sending malicious emails for nefarious purposes.
  • Moreover, attackers may use the stolen accounts to send subsequent emails based on previous correspondence, allowing them to go in deeper on attacking users and organizations. Through these follow-up emails, attackers can gain more information or achieve their malicious objectives.
  • Unauthorized access of email accounts and online service accounts is also included in these illicit activities. Such attacks can cause harm to users, organizations, and other associated accounts.

Attack Pathways Utilizing Compromised Accounts

Account Compromise
Attackers steal or illicitly obtain a user’s account information, typically through methods like stealing login credentials (username and password).
Access to Account
The attacker uses the pilfered account information to access the user’s email account or other online services, gaining access with the same privileges as the user.
Access to Email Data
The attacker accesses the user’s email data, including the content of emails, address book, inbox, sent items, and more.
Subsequent Email Attacks
Based on the email data and collected information, the attacker composes subsequent emails. The content of these emails varies depending on the attacker’s objectives but often includes phishing emails or emails with malicious attachments, typically targeting other users or organizations.
Further Damage and Attack Reuse
Users or organizations receiving subsequent email attacks may suffer harm, and the attacker may continue to reuse the compromised account for further phishing attacks or other malicious activities.
