Microsoft is now the most imitated brand when it comes to phishing attacks, new research has warned

The latest findings from Check Point’s Threat Intelligence division found that during the second quarter of 2023, Microsoft climbed to top place, up from third in the previous quarter, accounting for 29% of brand phishing attempts, placing it far ahead of Google in second place (at 19.5%) and Apple in third place (at 5.2%). Together, the three tech titans account for more than half of the observed brand imitator attacks.
