Criminals have recently launched a wave of email attacks targeting industrial AutoCAD files. The focus is on companies in the renewable energy and automotive sectors. Industrial espionage thus reaches an unprecedented scale.
For months we have been reading about increasingly sophisticated attacks on companies. With every new wave, we are amazed to discover that a particular virus or trojan is especially dangerous and clever. The programmer of the malware may even award himself or herself a medal if the German BSI issues a report or a news report mentions the attack.
Sending large attachments by email can cause problems because images, videos or large documents often exceed the maximum file size allowed. This is becoming increasingly problematic because more and more data is generated every day. Countless image and multimedia files created using smartphone cameras are proof of this. Research shows that the average size of the files that users want to send as email attachments is growing from year to year. This puts a strain on corporate email infrastructures, resulting in bans on the sending of large files, the setting of limits or a case-by-case basis approval policy.

Similar to Microsoft Exchange, some NoSpamProxy features can only be enabled through a PowerShell cmdlet. Specifying an “SPF-authenticated corporate email server” is one such feature. Entries of this kind facilitate the maintenance of NoSpamProxy enormously. “Corporate email servers” define the servers of a company that are allowed to use owned domains in email sender addresses. By default, IP addresses, subnets, host names, TLS-authenticated hosts, and Office 365 tenants can be specified.
Last Thursday, the NoSpamProxy team held a workshop with the title “Catch me if you can” at the Vogel IT. In the special location of the RheinEnergie sation in cologne, Stefan Cink ,product manager for NoSpamProxy, demonstrated in real time how simple it is to fool customers, employees and leaders with simulated email addresses and to cause extensive financial damage.
