See this suggestion from the source: https://www.ic3.gov/media/2015/150827-1.aspx


Create intrusion detection system rules that flag e-mails with extensions that are similar to company e-mail. For example, legitimate e-mail of abc_company.com would flag fraudulent e-mail of abc-company.com.


Does barracuda has some kind of protection for it?

It seems to me almost impossible, because what is 'similar'. There are hundreds of possibilities.

Barracuda Networks has thousands or rules, filters and definitions to stop spam, malware and viruses and we continue to add new ones every day.

We do not however advertise the methods that we use to block unwanted mail as that would give spammers and hackers information on how to bypass some of our processes.
