For our February meeting (2/13/14) Brandon McCann is going to be presenting on Phishing Frenzy, an open source phishing campaign tool. Below is the description of the talk and bio.

Presentation Description:

Phishing attacks are a prevalent threat against organizations large or small.  As professionals in the security field we need to be able to give our clients the “look” and feel of what a real “bad guy” may do to attack an organization. Creating a phishing campaign can often times be a complex and time consuming process. This is why Phishing Frenzy was created to manage phishing campaigns, phishing templates, and generate advanced statistics.

Feast your eyes on the new addition to the open source and infosec community. “Phishing Frenzy” is a feature rich phishing framework written in ruby on rails to help streamline your phishing process. The framework allows for the creation, customization and execution of phishing campaigns.


Brandon McCann is a senior security consultant with Accuvant LABS’ attack and penetration team with over seven years of experience in the information technology industry. Brandon specializes in focused penetration testing, antivirus avoidance and advanced email phishing tactics.

Brandon is co-founder of pentestgeek.com and the founder of the Phishing Frenzy open source project. Additionally, Brandon is an active part of the metasploit project with over 10 committed metasploit modules and continues to be very active within the security community.
