The rise of phishing activities has taken the top spot in attacks targeting end-users and organizations. Among the various forms of phishing attacks, there's one known as "SMiShing" attacks, which target users through SMS messages.

SMiShing Attacks

Today, we've noticed a SMiShing campaign in Kazakhstan, where a seemingly innocent link leads to a fake website that mimics the KazPost website, the official postal service of Kazakhstan. Several indicators set this apart:

  • The sender's country code
  • The target website
  • The fact that the package was never ordered
