Tracking Trends in Business Email Compromise (BEC) Schemes
Lord Remorin - Ryan Flores - Bakuei Matsukawa
eBook Edition: 2018

In May, 2017, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a public service announcement stating that Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks have grown into a US$5.3 billion industry. By 2018, we predict that the number will exceed $9 billion. This growing popularity of BEC among cybercriminals can be attributed to its relative simplicity—it requires little in the way of special tools or technical knowledge to pull off, instead requiring an understanding of human psychology and knowledge of how specific organizations work.

From January to September 2017, we dissected BEC as a cybercriminal operation, the tools commonly used, and their sources. We examined the trends that arose in BEC attacks by combing through the components usually found in such incidents—email with attachments, HTML files used for phishing, and executable files found to be malware. We also continued monitoring the different filenames commonly used in such attacks. We aim to inform organizations on how these scams work and identify the methods BEC actors currently use so they can prevent these kinds of schemes from affecting their organizations. (From Author)
