Technique to block/quarantine phishing emails?

  • 1.  Technique to block/quarantine phishing emails?

    Posted May 19, 2022 09:40 AM
    Below is a recent link about a fresh crop of phishing techniques where the @ symbol can be used to pass credentials to a website. Can anyone offer a technique to prevent emails like this from passing through a Fortimail appliance?

    Or, lacking that, some type of rule in a FortiGate filter to prevent access to such a website?

    Thank you!

    Hi Peter,

    It seems currently FML doesn't automatically strip the string before @ , we will discuss this with dev. Thanks for this info.​
