Insikt Group Discovers Global Credential Harvesting Campaign Using FiercePhish Open Source Framework


Recorded Future’s Insikt Group discovered a wide-reaching phishing campaign utilizing the FiercePhish open source offensive phishing framework. The campaign, which is hosted on Russian domain infrastructure but does not target users in Russia, is globally harvesting credentials from a variety of organizations in the public and private sectors.
