Email spoofing is a growing problem for an organization’s security. Spoofing occurs when a hacker sends an email that appears to have been sent from a trusted source/domain. Email spoofing is not a new concept. Defined as “the forgery of an email address header to make the message appear as if it was sent from a person or location other than the actual sender,” it has plagued brands for decades.
When an email is sent, the From address doesn’t show which server the email was actually sent from – instead, it shows the domain that was entered when the address was created so as not to arouse suspicion among recipients.
