Why is Quishing such a threat?

QR code phishing or quishing is hard to detect by classic phishing filters.

First, QR codes are simple images. They differ from links or attachments that can be inspected by email analysis tools and are generally allowed by email systems as an innocuous attachment or external resource, without triggering any alert.

It can come in different shapes and forms and can even be disguised to the human eye, making it hard for a security system to thoroughly examine them.

Second, they can leverage the same kind of obfuscation techniques hackers use to hide their malicious links, and we know some of these techniques work well, even in standard and well-known phishing threats. If phishing links with a lower level of stealth and obfuscation manage to bypass filters, just imagine if another layer of obfuscation, using an image — benign content in most cases — is used.

Third, QR codes need to be scanned with a different endpoint. In most cases, a smartphone. This smartphone can have its own set of vulnerabilities and might not be as secured and monitor as other endpoints in your system.

This introduces potential Shadow IT problems and extend the attack surface, while putting the employees endpoint at risk, providing a smaller screen surface and less inspection capabilities than a regular computer.

Finally, a lot of 2FA applications trained users to scan QR codes in a security context. The most popular scenario for QR code phishing is pretexting the addition of a new trusted device to enable or update 2FA access, adding trust and legitimacy in the user's mind.

All of these factors make QR code attacks effective : they are easier to deliver to the user's inbox and introduce more dangerous, less traceable behaviors from them.

This is why you should perform a quick test to see if your systems can filter QR codes and train your users, at least on these classic QR code phishing scenarios.
