Whaling is similar to spear phishing and is a targeted attack that is very hard to spot when it enters your inbox. If you are the victim of an attempted whaling attack, you’ll receive an email that appears to be from a colleague or business associate, which is written especially for you. In this email, you may be asked to send sensitive information or authorise payment.
Thanks to Virusfree you’ll be at minimal risk of receiving a whaling attack email. Our multi-layer filter effectively detects the threat, and our real-time dynamic threat analysis will stop the email before you can open it.
Our system then utilises behavioural sandboxing intelligence, to add it immediately into our large malware signature database to help recognise this threat effectively again in the future.
