Detecting Malicious QR Code Attacks

Abnormal has updated its defense strategies and added the capability to detect QR codes and parse links from them in attachments. The link-based signals from the images are ingested by the Abnormal AI-native detection engine and strengthens its ability to detect malicious activity.

The combination of behavioral AI detection, with the ability to further process images to detect QR codes and parse the corresponding information, provides a powerfully complete solution to the rise of QR code phishing attacks.

The QR code-based links are surfaced in the content analysis section within Threat Log as seen in the example below.
