Many gaps in networks and systems of large corporations begin with a well-designed and persuasive Phishing e-mail. Organizations and companies to avoid breaches should continually train their staff to detect fake and potentially malicious e-mails, which can steal identities, banking data and basically gain control of the computer. So here there’s something quite interesting to learn how to stop that.
Palying Phishing attacks is possible with with Gophish, a tool for simulating Phishing attacks. The idea behind Gophish is simple, to be able to perform Phishing techniques training to large networks of corporations or companies. And that it is available for everyone who wants to use it, in this case means two things:
- It is an open source software that is completely free for anyone who wants to use it.
- It is written in the programming language Go. With the benefit it has binaries compiled without dependencies. This makes the installation as simple as “download and run”.
It is an open source Phishing system intended to make phishing training available to everyone, and is supposed to be extremely easy to use. GoPhish differs from most similar commercial offers in that it is hosted on a server’s own internal network, so any information that is handled with it, will not leave the internal network.
It has a user friendly management interface. Built from the ground up with a JSON API that makes it easy for developers and system administrators to automate simulated Phishing campaigns. When you run it, two web servers, a database, and a background agent are started, which will handle the sending of emails. It is available for Windows, Linux and OS X.
