:: Phishing Admin Panel Hunting Thread ::

In this thread we will find ways to hunt and attribute phishing admin panels.

This is a continuation from my #phishing hunting thread released earlier this year. ()

Please retweet to knowledge share among others.
Firstly we need to understand what an admin panel is in relation to phishing sites. There are many phishing-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings for threat actors to buy allowing them to quickly and easily deploy kits online. They normally consists of a threat actor buying an API key.
In this thread I will show you how to fingerprint some of the major panels, if you feel I have missed any let me know as I would love to keep this thread current and up-to-date on new threats.

Google'i otsingutes olevad reklaamid on jätkuvalt pahavara ja pettuste allikas. Näita guugeldades ülimat hoolikust isegi usaldusväärse tarkvara ja teenuste puhul. #phishing #googleads #googleadwords #scam

Näide meie oma rahvusliku uhkuse "Skype" otsingust: /1
Eesti meedias kirjutas Forte toimetaja juba mai alguses, kuidas ta ise 10 eurot kahju sai + kahtlase faili:… Kommentaatorid võivad parastada, et küll on rumal inimene, aga minu poolt suur kiitus: enda ämbrite avaldamine võib ära hoida x järgmist ohvrit. /2
Too mai alguse õngitsusleht on nüüd Google'i filtrisse kinni jäänud, seda külastades saad suure punase hoiatuse. /3

:: Phishing Hunting Thread ::

This is a thread about how to hunt and find #Phishing sites.
Retweets would be great to help spread the knowledge and please add your own techniques, ideas and suggestions.

Let's go hunting!
Firstly we need a site to use as a pivot. I have attached a number of sources at the bottom of this thread. For demonstration purposes we will use this site ::


This is a #Phishing site against Microsoft Office
Initially let's see if there is a #PhishingKit or #OpenDir on the domain. Enumeration on the domain is important. This is a example of sites to load and see ::

I've got a story to share. Not as exciting as the exploits of @TinkerSec, @HydeNS33k, or @_sn0ww, but a story nonetheless. #DFIR & #BlueTeam in nature. 1/
I worked for a service provider back in the day. And we provided email accounts to customers. 2/
This was back when most places would slap #SquirrelMail or #Horde on top of a #dovecot server. 3/

With the 2020 elections coming on strong already, I think it is important to talk about keeping yourself safe from "hacking".
When you think of hacking, most envision someone using a computer & complex code to break into your computer.
#Hacking can take many forms, many can be done done over the phone or through email messages. These scams are known as #Phishing.
Example: A phone call where someone asks you for information that are common security questions:

Your first car
Mother's maiden name
Birth City
They might pretend to be from your bank, your email or internet service provider, or your mortgage lender. They might pose as someone looking to verify your identity because of "unusual activity". This can come many ways, e.g. via a phone call, text message or email.

Okay, here’s the deal with Security Keys and #phishing, because even some experts don’t really get it. HT @boblord and @runasand for the idea 1/
IN THE BEGINNING, God created passwords. If you knew your password, you could sign in; if you didn’t, the door remained locked. Simple! 2/
Unfortunately, phishers realized that if *they* knew your password, they too could sign in. Relying on a single “knowledge factor” meant if they could make you enter your pwd on their fake login page, they were home scot free. 3/

It's #SaferInternetDay today. Will tweet some tips today.
1. You can't lose what you don't have. Only register an account for a website or app when you really need to. Use a throwaway email address (like Mailinator) and fake as much personal data as possible.
2. Never reuse passwords. Even not for "low value" accounts. Use a password manager or even a password book if that's most convenient for you to support you in creating unique passwords.
#SaferInternetDay #Security
3. Configure 2FA for your online accounts when possible, even if only SMS based 2FA is available. 2FA is always better than no 2FA. Configure a fallback (2FA backup codes or other recovery mechanism) for when the code cannot be received or generated.

Unpopular opinion of the day: #phishing awareness campaigns and teaching your users to stay frosty is a close to useless endeavour. A waste of resources. Read on to see my point (1/n) /cc @troyhunt @randomdross @sirdarckcat
I know anti-phishing is a business that feeds a lot of people but the way this war is fought today just seems off to me.
First, I differentiate targeted phishing campaigns (usually APTs) from massive or moderately massive phishing. I don't think I need to point out why you can't fight the former with awareness.

Earlier today, I wrote a tweet about another @Twitter promoted tweet #phishing advert and I reminded you that I had written about it a couple of week ago.

Well, guess what has happened since this morning...?

#security #scam
Amazingly, there had been another one today, @twitter!

This time, @farahmenswear is the main hacked account and the supporting account for this #phishing #scam is incredible...
Amazingly, the supporting accounts for this #phishing #scam include @EuroParlPress - the European Parliament Press Office. This is now off-the-scale!

Maybe @guyverhofstadt or @GabrielMariya can look into what is going on?

I wrote a piece about #phishing adverts on @Twitter a couple of weeks ago. @TwitterSupport had put it about that they had it under control. Here’s the article...

#security #digitaladvertising
Incredibly, it’s still going on. This is a #safety and #privacy issue that is not being addressed by @TwitterSupport.

This time @capgemini_aust are the main target and it is EXACTLY the same promoted advert that I highlighted in my article.
The accounts used to legitimise the #scam this time are

@BenAllenCA @azariarachel @ARTNIGHTLDN @AKIpress_com and @67Kelechi.

Once again, all of them are @verified accounts. And this is still live over half an hour after it was posted.

It’s Time Twitter Cleaned Up The #Phishing Ads

I’ve just written this. I’m passionate about Twitter - always have been. I love how it is tackling fake accounts and hoping to reduce the amount of extremism online. But these adverts should be a priority.
Today’s scam has roped in @patheuk, @swansladies, @sarahscoop, @angola2411, @bookmyshow_sup - last time it was @monsterjobs, @GeoffroyDidier, @wsu_womensgolf, @CarteNoireUK and @rpsgmavericks - all without their knowledge and all trying to scam people out of their #bitcoin.
Each of the accounts used in the scams are @verified and, last time this happened, I copied in @TwitterSupport so they knew it was happening. It looks like it takes about 30 mins-1 hour to take down these scams but that is long and the damage to innocent accounts lasts longer.

This is THE most incredible #scam on @Twitter yet and it raises all sorts of questions for @twitter, @verified and @jack (there goes my chance of ever getting my blue tick!!)

It starts with a promoted tweet...
You’ll notice that, on the #promoted tweet, the account name is Elon Musk and it has a blue tick... so it’s got to be legit, right?
But, if we need proof that this is a genuine offer from Elon Musk, we just have to click on that account and see his other tweets to make sure it’s him...

This is how bad guys can reset (and later resell) your stolen iPhone. The average Joe stands *no chance*, here is why (Thread)
This is a recent text message someone provided to me.
You receive a message from "Apple" to your recovery phone. In your native language, perfectly spelled. This looks legit, and you're happy because you might have a chance to get back your lost phone, right?
Domain name looks like an official icloud service, you know how this ends for most people. This is a very simple #phishing, yet very effective.

1/ If there's a 1% inequality problem in #cybersecurity it's not the ability to hire skilled employees…
2/ despite increasingly damaging #cyberattacks and billions invested into new technologies, most are only accessible to the 1% of companies.
3/ #infosec professionals are mission driven. Working on big, interesting problems in #cybersecurity is not exclusive to the G2000
