This disclosure describes techniques to automatically respond to phishing attacks received via communication channels such as email, chat, SMS, etc. A large number of automated responses require the attacker to differentiate between automated responses and human responses which can require substantial effort. In this manner, the described techniques actively disincentivize phishing attacks by causing an increase in the cost for an attacker to conduct such attacks.
