SINCON 2020 Conference Workshop Track

Day 1 (2 Jan 2021)


@ Workshop Room


Email Phishing campaigns are commonly used to test employees' awareness in a company/organization. This exercise involves mostly the combination of phishing emails and websites. An effective campaign requires careful preparation starting from designing a phishing website to executing payload at the target in an undetectable manner. SniperPhish is an advanced Web-Email-Spear-phishing toolkit developed in PHP to conduct professional phishing assessments. In this session, we demonstrate how web-email-based phishing attacks or targeted spear-phishing is conducted in the real-world using our virtual environment. The main advantage of Sniperphish is that it automates most of the manual tasks for you while setting up the environment. We will cover the SniperPhish installation, configuration, campaign creation, phishing website configuration, and campaign execution. The session also covers how the campaign results are tracked and how we can generate custom reports containing web and email data. The abstract idea behind this toolkit is to simulate, combine, and centrally track all campaigns that involve email and phishing websites. SniperPhish avoids manual coding for each website created as part of the campaign and allows website customizations without touching the tracking codes used on the website. In addition to the core campaign module, we also detail the addon-on modules included in the SniperPhish toolkit.
