Phishing Simulator report showing bots - what are they?

Brass Contributor

Hi we recently ran a phishing simulation and two results came back as: (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) SkypeUriPreview Preview/0.5

Both of these are non UK (we are based in UK)


So it looks like they are bots/crawlers, but how are they associated with the email of two of our users, which say they clicked the link... I am no bot expert either but what is actually happening here?

Hi Neil,


I also encountered this useragent today and after testing found out that these are not due to the user click however because of automatic preview of url by application like skype/teams.


Its evident that dropbox one is also related to preview by said app.
