  • Publication number: 20220078197
    Abstract: Information of an electronic message to be delivered to an intended recipient is received. For an original resource identifier included in the electronic message, a corresponding alternative resource identifier that can be at least in part used to obtain the original resource identifier and obtain context information associated with the electronic message is determined. The original resource identifier included in the electronic message is replaced with the alternative resource identifier to generate a modified electronic message. The modified electronic message with the alternative resource identifier is allowed to be delivered to the intended recipient instead of the electronic message with the original resource identifier. A request made using the alternative resource identifier in the modified message triggers a security action based at least in part on the context information associated with the electronic message.
