SMS Phishing Detection Strategy

Xintec’s proactive approach protects networks and users from SMS phishing through comprehensive detection and prevention, optimized for telecom environments.

SMS Phishing Threat Insights

SMS phishing, or smishing, presents a growing challenge for telecom operators and their customers, exploiting text messaging to deceive individuals into sharing personal information. Cybercriminals employ methods like software to verify targeted mobile numbers, bypassing detection by operators focused on landline monitoring. 

These fraudsters also create automated shops for selling stolen data and offer services to host phishing sites, complicating the fight against smishing. With a reported increase of over 328% in smishing incidents in 2020, the importance of vigilant monitoring and prevention is undeniable. 

Despite the rise in smishing, public awareness seems to be waning, with only 23% of people showing familiarity with this form of phishing in 2022. Telcos can play a crucial role in curbing these attacks by enhancing monitoring systems for signups and transactions, helping prevent their networks from being exploited by smishing operations.
