Webroot® Security Awareness Training

Taxes, taxes, taxes…

Tax season consistently spawns high phishing activity, so we focused this release on the popular tax scams in the US, UK and Canada. In addition to tax-themed phishing templates, we released lure pages for related government agencies and tools, although none pertaining directly to IRS content as they are on our prohibited list.

What is being released?

  • 14 email phishing templates focused on tax season scams
  • Three lure pages for government tax agencies and Intuit software
  • Minor course updates

GDPR course options

This release is focused on system-generated messages for faked email delivery issues and a new course on macro-based attacks. Also, unpublished the course “Data Protection Act 2017 (UK)”; content is superseded by the more recent GDPR course options.

What is being released?

  • Six email phishing templates covering a range of fake delivery alerts
  • A multi-provider (ESP) lure page
  • New course on macro-based attacks “Dangerous Communiqué”
