Social Media Access

A Brief Introduction?

Social media account takeovers are an increasingly common occurrence, affecting the likes of politicians, celebrities, brands, other high-profile accounts and even the heads of social networks themselves. But they also trickle down to individuals and small business accounts in striking numbers.

A social media profile is a valuable tool for corporations and celebrities to spread awareness, but it’s also a broad, easily exploited, and often unregulated attack surface. If the page itself is compromised, the brand can become tarnished and trusting users can be enticed to click malicious links, directing to phishing pages, scams, or exploits.

Threat Activity?

However, no one has taken a comprehensive look at highly-public compromise frequency and cost. In the first six months of 2020, ZeroFOX saw a 95% increase in executive/VIP-related threat activity compared to the last 6 months of 2019, totaling over 1.2M incidents for over 7,000 executives ZeroFOX protects.

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased opportunity for hackers looking to target high-profile accounts. Threat activity targeting ZeroFOX-protected executives greatly increased in April 2020, and then again in June 2020, likely linked to new work habits and a shift to fully digital communications. Not only did the volume of attacks increase, attackers also began to diversify. While more trafficked social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram naturally comprise the majority of alert volume, there are significant portions within surface web sites, forums and news sites, blogs, and the dark web.

For this purpose, BurpSuite is the commonly used tool by hackers to perform a man in the middle attack.
