The September 2017 Webroot Quarterly Threat Trends Report showed that 1.385 million new, unique phishing sites are created each month, with a high of 2.3 million sites created in May.

The data; collected by Webroot, a leader in endpoint security, network security, and threat intelligence; show today’s phishing attacks are highly targeted, sophisticated, hard to detect, and difficult for users to avoid.

The latest phishing sites employ realistic web pages that are almost impossible to find using web crawlers, and they use social engineering to trick victims into providing personal and business information.
