How Hackers Bypass Gmail 2FA at Scale – Joseph Cox

1.jpeg

If you’re an at risk user, that extra two-factor security code sent to your phone may not be enough to protect your email account. Hackers can bypass these protections, as we’ve seen with leaked NSA documents on how Russian hackers targeted US voting infrastructure companies. But a new Amnesty International report gives more insight into how some hackers break into Gmail and Yahoo accounts at scale, even those with two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.

They do this by automating the entire process, with a phishing page not only asking a victim for their password, but triggering a 2FA code that is sent to the target’s phone. That code is also phished, and then entered into the legitimate site so the hacker can login and steal the account. The news acts as a reminder that although 2FA is generally a good idea, hackers can still phish certain forms of 2FA, such as those that send a code or token over text message, with some users likely needing to switch to a more robust method.

“Virtually in that way they can bypass any token-based 2FA if no additional mitigations are implemented” Claudio Guarnieri, a technologist at Amnesty, told Motherboard in an online chat. 2FA is adding another layer of authentication onto your account. With token-based 2FA, you may have an app that generates a code for you to enter when logging in from an unknown device, or, perhaps most commonly, the service will send a text message containing a short code that you then type into your browser.

WP Link Shield Diamond

1

WP Linkshield found that EVERY single link cloaker tested broke responsive sites. Considering that 60% of us use mobile devices nowadays .That’s a HUGE problem and a huge amount of profit lost.

If you’re not cloaking links you are not safe either , you are leaving up to 30% of sales on the table through, affiliate theft, browser switching and social blocking. WHAT IS THIS BUG EXACTLY? Before I explain that I need to explain cloaking modes…

There are 2 main cloaking modes –

1 REDIRECT CLOAKING – this is most common type – you get a new URL and it redirects to the original URL – problem here is… this doesn’t hide your affiliate ID and you lose money if the user switches browsers or shares the raw link

2 IFRAME CLOAKING – with this method the URL never changes and the destination page is loaded in an IFRAME so your affiliate ID is never exposed and you don’t lose money through browser switching…

Iframing is great for affiliates as you can overlay messages, you can kick exit pops – it gives you a lot more control and reduced commission losses.However the vendors of cloaking tools have never looked at what happens when users open responsive sites in iframe mode – the answer is RESPONSIVE SITES BREAK! This boils down to BAD CODING …

WP Link Shield 2.0 protects your affiliate links, makes your links look natural, allows you to post them socially with full metas and maximizes your affiliate income- a no brainer for ALL affiliate marketers

HERE’S WHAT IT DOES

– it works perfectly with responsive sites (99% of other cloakers break mobile sites)
– it never displays the raw link in the browser unlike conventional cloakers
– It prevents commission loses through browser switching and link sharing
– it allows you to edit meta images and descriptions to maximize social clicks.
– It allows you to block exit pops
– it works flawlessly on all social media – many cloakers fail
– it makes your affiliate links look 100% natural increasing clicks
– it maintains your site branding with your choice of keywords
– it’s super easy to use

In a nutshell WP Linkshield 2 works to reduce commission loses and maximize your affiliate income.
