Microsoft Defender Attack Simulator

New Contributor

Hi there, 

I'd like to start an attack simulation/phishing campagne in my company with the Microsoft Defender Attack Simulator. In many ways it works/worked fine, but if i select  "Link to malware" as a method and a Microsoft Word Docs file as an attachment. In this file the text and link, which I configured before is only shown as a picture. Is there a way to show it as text? 

I hope I could describe my problem proberly. 

Thanks in advance.

Hey LWulf950!
Thanks for the question. The behavior you are describing is as designed (at least for now). We needed to hide the text until the user clicks the 'override' and OpenXML doesn't let us hide text, so rendering the content as an image was the compromise position. We're still working on alternate implementations, but this flow was closest to a real attack.
Thanks!
