The phishing kit, entitled as LogoKit, is meant to be completely modularized. It is an embeddable set of JavaScript functions and likewise permits for simple reuse and adoption by others. The kit is composed in such a way that it interacts within the Document Object Model, which permits the script to dynamically adjust to the visible content and HTML form data without having the need for any user interaction.

For instance, phishingpage[.]site/login.html#[email protected]. The location hash is then split down into parts. The part’s delimiter is the ‘@’ symbol, which enables the script to extract the user’s/company’s domain to retrieve the logo and ultimately redirected it to a victim.
