Every election year we find our senses pounded with propaganda from pundits and candidates trying to sway us to one political camp or another. Computer attackers are leveraging our curiosity, and perhaps desensitization to political messages to launch attacks with purportedly political themes.
Recent phishing attacks that have been reported by security firms such as KnowBe4 include:
- Trump Withdraws from Presidential Race
- Sanders Withdraws from Presidential Race
- Update your voter registration
- Hillary Clinton Indicted by FBI on Email Scandal
