Cyber attacks that exploit your brand
Building on more than 25 years of experience surveying the internet, we use our extensive collection of domain information, website front pages, search engine advertisements, social media sites, spam mail feeds, and app stores to identify the following online threats:
Rogue Mobile Apps
Fake apps which impersonate organizations’ legitimate applications, in order to gain access to their users’ personal details.
Claiming to offer highly discounted goods, these shops are simply a front to capture users’ payment information, and will deliver counterfeit products (or none at all).
Encourage victims to transfer funds to the criminal on the promise of large returns, often impersonating well-known public figures.
Domains which are deceptively similar to legitimate websites, thus lending credibility to a cyber attack.
Scams which trick victims into thinking they are being marketed to by a well-known company or brand.
Malicious Email Addresses
Email addresses participating in advance fee fraud schemes, found in the millions of spam emails that Netcraft analyzes.
Frequently Asked Questions
A brand’s online identity, whether that’s a website, social media profile, ecommerce platform or any other online presence, is often the primary point of interaction between a business and its customers. A good brand reputation can take years to build, but can quickly be tarnished by cybercriminals who will seize any opportunity to exploit a brand’s reputation for their own malicious goals.
Your website is the cornerstone of your online identity. Attacks that are carried out on websites purporting to be your organization – and therefore on your brand – can have devastating effects on your reputation, for both your existing customer base and future prospects.
Cybercriminals use a variety of tactics, including setting up fake shops that drive traffic away from legitimate sites, phishing sites that steal the credentials of would-be customers, or survey scams that impersonate your brand to carry out fake contests with nonexistent prizes.
When your brand is being exploited, every second counts. Before you’re even aware there’s a problem, a single fraudster from across the globe could establish hundreds of fraudulent online shopping websites using your brand’s identity. Traditional methods of taking down websites can be slow and ineffective, allowing criminals to keep operating and doing untold harm to your brand and consumers.
A suspected scam website can be analyzed, validated, and takedown notifications dispatched within minutes of discovery. Content can be taken down within hours.
