"Exposing Cross-Channel Abuse in Converged Communications Infrastructure with Text-Messaging Scams"
Recent convergence of the Internet with the telecommunications infrastructure offers malicious actors the ability to craft cross-channel attacks that leverage both telephony and Internet resources. In this talk, Bharat Srinivasan -- a final-year Ph.D. student in the School of Computer Science -- first introduces the notion of cross-channel abuse and explains why it’s an emerging tactic used by fraudsters. He then presents a longitudinal study of the support infrastructure aiding cross-channel text-messaging abuse, which reveals interesting insights on domain and IP infrastructure used in text messaging scams, spam and phishing attacks. He concludes with a brief overview of other cross-channel abuse cases, such as technical support scams.
