Cybercriminals have been using a new method to ensure that the URLs included in their phishing emails bypass the Safe Links security feature in Office 365, cloud security company Avanan revealed on Tuesday.
Safe Links, offered as part of Microsoft’s Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) solution, is designed to protect organizations against malicious links delivered through emails and documents. Safe Links checks the original URL to see if it has been blacklisted (by Microsoft or the ATP customer) or if it points to malware. If a malicious element is detected, the original link is replaced and users are alerted when they click on it.
