In our new podcast series, How to Be a Cyber Criminal, we explore the minds of cyber attackers. In this week’s episode, we get the inside details on how to compromise someone’s account with email account compromise (EAC) attacks.
Email Account Compromise is when an attacker actually compromises an email account. They can start sending emails as, well, you.
What we talked about:
