Creating Templates

Gathering the Details

Begin by gathering the information relevant to your campaign

  • Name - Think of a name for your template. This will come in useful when identifying it in the future. Especially if this is a generic phishing campaign that will be reused (E.g.,Important Updates on Employee Dress Code)

  • Subject - Give the template a subject title. This should be something engaging that the end-user will want to click on.

  • Sender - Provide a name for the user or organization that the email is simulating. This could be something as simple as [COMPANY] to a specific user working at the company you're impersonathing e.g., [John Doe]

Building the Template

This may be the hardest part of your day. Creating a convincing pretext that will convince the target to click a link or download a document.

Thankfully there are several repositories available online with templates and pretext ideas that are ready to go:

The following details a template that I've used previously. The landing page was a link to the employee login where after credentials were entered where once I successfully landed a phish I could access the employee portal and attempt credential stuffing throughout the environment.
