Microsoft Forms is an offering from Microsoft that can be used for creating quick and versatile forms for collecting data and quizzes. They are easily configurable and can be integrated with other Microsoft 365 offerings such as Teams, SharePoint and Power Automate, without any hassles. This is a two-part article.

Microsoft is rolling out automatic blocking for repeated Microsoft Forms phishing attempts to boost the product's security by stopping attackers from abusing forms and surveys to harvest sensitive data from their targets.

Microsoft Forms is a part of the Office 365 cloud-based subscription service and it is designed to enable its users to create surveys, polls, and quizzes for collecting feedback and data online.

'This feature restricts repeated offenders who are trying to phish. Microsoft Forms Team will block users who have two or more confirmed phishing forms from distributing forms and collecting responses,' a new entry on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap named 'Forms Repeated Phisher Handling' says.

'Global and security admins will be informed and can unblock restricted users via the Restricted User Portal,' the Microsoft Team also adds in the update.

The new capability is currently rolling out to all environments and it will be generally available to all Microsoft Forms users this month.

Automatic phishing detection rolled out in July

The automated blocking of repeated phishing attempts complements a previously introduced feature from July which allows Microsoft Forms to identify phishing attacks.

'In order to make Forms a more secure service, we are going to enable automatic phishing detection to prevent our customers from losing sensitive data via phishing forms,' Microsoft said at the time.

The Forms phishing detection feature makes use of automated machine reviews to 'proactively detect malicious password collection in forms and surveys,' thus allowing for real-time action in blocking phishers from using the Microsoft Forms app to create phishing landing pages.

Microsoft is also in the process of rolling out automatic phishing detection for enterprise in-org forms as well, to better protect all customers.

In Microsoft Forms' automated phishing attack detection fails to identify such an attack, users can also use the 'Report abuse' link under the 'Submit' button at the bottom of the form to report the ongoing attack to Microsoft.

'If you suspect a form or survey you've received is attempting to collect passwords or other sensitive information in Microsoft Forms, report it to help prevent yours and other's private information from getting compromised,' Microsoft states.

The company also advises users to never share sensitive info via online forms or surveys as the best possible method of themselves from phishing attacks.

In related news, Microsoft is also rolling out a new 'Unverified Sender' feature to make it simpler for users to detect phishing emails that land in their Outlook clients' inboxes, as well as an enhanced notification system for phishing messages for Microsoft 365 admins.
