Telegram has become the working ground for the creators of phishing bots and kits looking to market their products to a larger audience or to recruit unpaid helpers.

While the messaging platform has been used for cybercriminal activities for several years, it appears that threat actors in the phishing business have started to rely on it more lately.

A trend has been observed by researchers at cybesecurity company Kaspersky, who found a community having formed around the increasingly popular topic of phishing.

From selling services to offering advice and free initiation instructions, phishing actors are extremely active on Telegram.
