Understanding Anti-Spoofing and Impersonation

Spoofing: Spoofing involves forging sender information, like email addresses or phone numbers, to make it seem like a trusted source is contacting you. Anti-spoofing measures, such as user awareness training and email filtering aim to unmask these frauds and protect individuals from scams like phishing attacks.

Types of Spoofing

  • Email Spoofing – This involves masking the sender’s address in an email to make it emerge as if it’s arriving from a trusted source, such as a bank, colleague, or trusted company. The attacker then tricks the recipient into clicking malicious links, unlocking suspicious files holding malware, or disclosing sensitive information.
  • Phone Number Spoofing – Cybercriminals can manipulate through forged caller ID to display as a familiar number, like your bank or a local business. This technique is often used in phishing scams where the attacker attempts to extract personal details or financial information over the phone.
  • IP Spoofing – This tactic involves masking a device’s IP address to make it occur as if it’s originating from a trusted location. This can be used to skip security measures or gain access to restricted networks.
  • Website Spoofing – Attackers are very smart, they create a fake website that nearly looks like a trusted one. When an individual enters their login credentials on the spoofed site, they unknowingly surrender their sensitive information to the attacker.

Impersonation

In Impersonation, this tactic goes beyond spoofing by not only faking sender information but also copying the communication style and behavior of the actual person. This makes the attack more believable, making it more likely that the victim will be fooled.

Types of Impersonation

  • User Impersonation – Attackers trying to be high-ranking officials to trick employees into approving fraudulent transactions or handing over sensitive data.
  • Service Impersonation – They are trying to act as a service provider like IT support, so attackers can gain remote access to devices or trick users into installing malware.
  • Business Email Compromise – They are trying to pose as a client or business partner that can be used to send fraudulent emails and extract confidential business information.
