Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG) revealed that there were fewer phishing attacks last year compared to the year before, indicating that the new protections are working. In an official blog, Toni Gidwani, Security Engineering Manager, Threat Analysis Group noted that the company sent nearly 40,000 warnings against government-backed phishing or malware attempts in 2019, a decrease of nearly 25 percent from 2018.

However, it was also noted that one in five accounts that received a phishing warning was targeted several times by attackers. There has also been an increase in the number of attackers, including those from Iran and North Korea, masquerading as news channels or journalists to spread disinformation or malware. (ANI)
