Good day all,
As part of our efforts in Comodo Antispam Laboratory (CASL), we’re working on a 24/7 basis for the protection of our customers from spam and phishing emails and related threats. As part of the global “Threat Intelligence Laboratory”, in CASL we focus much on the proactive protection of phishing and spam, and our goal is to prevent threats before reaching our users. Recently we monitor that we’re short in finding new sample emails (spam or phishing) to analyze and develop prevention methods (that’s very good from one perspective but not from the other :))
For this reason, we have two requests from the community here in this forum, which helped much till now and continues to help us to improve our products and services.
1- we have created an email to report especially phishing attacks. “phishingalert[atbp]avlab.comodo.com” is the address where you may submit all kind of phishing emails you see as a threat. Whether it is from our products or not, we’ll be glad to analyze them. It is possible to just forward emails you receive, but in terms of better investigation, and thorough analysis we would prefer if you add the email as an attachment and send accordingly.
2- I find this request more effective and important than the first one: we are currently analyzing millions of emails per day, to identify new threats or spams. However, we need more and up-to-date spam/phishing emails, that targets real users. If you have some email accounts that you do not use anymore, that are full of spam or promotional emails, and open to use please send us these accounts information, so that we can utilize them for a good purpose. These are small honeypots for our data collection system and the intelligence we can build on.
We would be happy to get response to these 2 requests, as well as new ideas and suggestions.
Thank you for your support and cooperation
