Q4 2018: Email Fraud and DMARC Adoption Trends

From July through October 2018, attackers overwhelmingly used display name deception to launch business email compromise attacks, stealing money and credentials from their victims while damaging trust in the brands and domains they impersonated. Among Agari’s findings:

  • 54% of attacks leveraged impersonated brands, particularly Microsoft and Amazon, in the sender display name to convince victims the email was legitimate.
  • Raw DMARC policy adoption rose by 51%, according to the most comprehensive DMARC snapshot to date—but not all DMARC adoption was benevolent.
  • The US federal government sector led DMARC adoption, with a 76% DMARC reject rate.
