SP Toolkit - Open Source Phishing Education Toolkit

SP Toolkit - Open Source Phishing Education Toolkit


A new open source toolkit makes it ridiculously simple to set up phishing Web sites and lures. The software was designed to help companies test the phishing awareness of their employees, but as with most security tools, this one could be abused by miscreants to launch malicious attacks.

The spt project is an open source phishing education toolkit that aims to help in securing the mind as opposed to securing computers. Organizations spend billions of dollars annually in an effort to safeguard information systems, but spend little to nothing on the under trained and susceptible minds that operate these systems, thus rendering most technical protections instantly ineffective. A simple, targeted link is all it takes to bypass the most advanced security protections. The link is clicked, the deed is done.spt was developed from the ground up to provide a simple and easy to use framework to identify your weakest links so that you can patch the human vulnerability. If the spt project sounds interesting to you, please consider downloading it for evaluation in your own organization. Feedback is welcomed and always appreciated.
