Successful Phishing Subject Lines

Gone Phishing: The Top 10 Attractive Lures by Roy Urrico.

From the post:

The list shows there’s still a lot of room to train employees on how to spot a phishing or spoofed email. Here they are:

  • Security Alert – 21%
  • Revised Vacation and Sick Time Policy – 14%
  • UPS Label Delivery 1ZBE312TNY00015011 – 10%
  • BREAKING: United Airlines Passenger Dies from Brain Hemorrhage – VIDEO – 10%
  • A Delivery Attempt was made – 10%
  • All Employees: Update your Healthcare Info – 9%
  • Change of Password Required Immediately – 8%
  • Password Check Required Immediately – 7%
  • Unusual sign-in activity – 6%
  • Urgent Action Required – 6%

*Capitalization is as it was in the phishing test subject line

A puff piece for KnowBe4 but a good starting point. KnowBe4 has an online phishing test among others. The phishing test requires registration.

Enjoy!
