I heard about a phishing technique called "tabnapping." What is it, and what are the best enterprise defenses against it?
The best enterprise tabnapping defense is to keep Web browsers up to date. Using antimalware software and an antimalware network device to block malicious webpages will also help mitigate the risk of attack.
Additionally, security awareness trainings should include that employees must review the URL bar prior to entering credentials into a webpage. However, it is difficult to always check the URL bar -- especially on mobile devices -- so an enterprise may want to specifically brand its login portals to help employees quickly distinguish a legitimate login page from a malicious one.
