Cybersecurity firm Group-IB has said that the average price for a phishing kit rose from $122 recorded in 2018 to $304 in 2019. The company said the most targeted login pages were for Amazon, Google, Instagram, Office 365, and PayPal. Phishing kit prices rose despite an increase in the number of kit sellers and the number of phishing kit ads.
The firm said Amazon and PayPal are known targets of phishing operations as it leads to hackers making fraudulent transactions with victims’ funds. Meanwhile, Google and Office 365 accounts can often lead to compromises of corporate networks.
