Brand-name spoofing still a popular tactic to lure victims into giving up their login credentials and payment card information, new data from Barracuda Networks shows.

Cybercriminals continue to go to phishing as their initial attack vector:  Barracuda Networks alone has blocked more than 3.2 million phishing emails since May 1, according to the security firm.

The email security firm filtered some 1.5 million phishing emails and more than 10,000 unique phishes in May, and already has blocked 1.7 million just in June, with more than 2,000 different phishes.

Among the types of phishes Barracuda spotted are those that pose as well-known brand name companies such as CitiBank, Key Bank, Netflix, and Wells Fargo, sending phony emails that try to fake the victim into visiting malicious links that steal their login credentials and payment information, for example.
