Security teams can now easily get visibility to links that are behind QR codes and were detected as malicious.
At Avanan, we constantly monitor and track the threat actors and attack trends to keep our security engines ahead of the attackers. This is why we started scanning links behind QR codes many years ago.
Now that we see more and more attacks utilizing QR codes, we decided to improve the way administrators understand QR-code-based attacks and to facilitate reporting on them.
With this new release, the Link Analysis section of the email page now clearly states when a link is behind a QR code.
In addition, administrators can filter on all emails with malicious QR codes through the Custom Queries (Detect reason contains QR).
