SSL Certificate from letsencrypt.org - Setup Guide

I’m sure many of you have heard of the new free service from letsencrypt.org which essentially offers a valid SSL Certificate for everyone. The goal of the project is to run the entire internet over HTTPS without any excuses.

I’ve been using the service since early this year when they launched the beta, and I have to tell you that it is legit and something you really should be incorporating into your e-mail phishing process. Since we are going to provide professional phishing services for our clients, doing it over HTTPS and with a valid SSL Certificate is a must whenever we harvest sensitive info.

It’s been a little over a year since I started phishing full time with Phishing Frenzy and there is no looking back now. The project has really come a long way since I first started with it. I can’t thank the community enough for all the support and contributions along the way. Phishing today seems more enjoyable than ever before and I owe a lot of that gratification to Phishing Frenzy.

If you haven’t had a chance to checkout the project, I highly recommend you do and get involved. We are always seeking new templates to be added to our official gallery for the entire community to use, tweak and share.

Phishing Frenzy: HTA PowerShell Attacks with BeEF

If you’re not currently using Phishing Frenzy, BeEF, or PowerSploit for your Phishing campaigns you’re really missing out. In this article we are briefly going to cover what I consider to be one of the “new hotness” attack vectors that every pentester should be using in their next phishing assessment.

With that said we are very pleased to announce that BeEF is now integrated in Phishing Frenzy. If you’re not familiar with BeEF or its capabilities I would highly recommend you check it out. BeEF is the browser exploitation framework and one of the major features is the ability to hook browsers and inject JavaScript into browser sessions.

With the recent addition of BeEF integration to Phishing Frenzy you can now hook and launch client side attacks easier than ever. With a simple click of the button Phishing Frenzy will instantly add JavaScript tags that BeEF requires. This means any target landing on your phishing page will instantly get hooked if JavaScript is enabled (which it usually is!).

According to their Wiki: “Jenkins is an award-winning application that monitors executions of repeated jobs, such as building a software project or jobs run by cron.” Here is what Jenkins looks like.

Phishing Frenzy: Increase Reporting Fu

The development and addition of new features within Phishing Frenzy (PF) continues to grow. Some of these latest upgrades and email phishing features come from a lot of feedback that I have obtained from the community. Thank you all for the great feedback regarding PF.

Recently PF was converted and upgraded to run the latest version of bootstrap. Previously PF was running bootstrap version 2 and was missing out on some of the latest bootstrap features. The conversion was fairly long and painful, but the end result is very pleasing.
