Spear Phishing Links

The use of Links attached to the email or sent in plain text to confuse the victim on to clicking and avoiding Email providers scanners.

Spearphishing with a link is a specific variant of spearphishing. It is different from the other forms of spearphishing in that employs the use of links to download malware contained in email, instead of attaching malicious files to the email itself, to avoid defenses that may inspect email attachments. The visited website may compromise the web browser. using an exploit, or the user will be prompted to download applications, documents, zip files, or even an executable depending on the pretext for the email in the first place. Links may also direct users to malicious applications designed to Steal Application Access Tokens in order to gain access to protected applications and information.
