Computer Security -Email Phishing


Recommended Posts

All,

 

Computers and smartphones are a part of everyday life now. The Crooks and hackers are constantly trying to get our information. Take a look at Kim Komando's website on the Phishing email quiz. Can you spot the phishing versus the legitimate ones? I scored an 80% with missing 2 out of 10.

Good post!

 

I scored 80% too - I declared 2 mails as a Phishing-mail too although they were legit :D

 

But better this way than the other way round...

 

Meanwhile it is partly very difficult to distinguish a legit from a spam-mail very often.

 

The same for me although it is part of my job every day... There are millions of different versions out there - every day!

I got 90%... but that was after I noticed that the hot links within the screen shots themselves were 'warm' (displayed hot link information). I'm pretty sure I missed the 2nd one as a result.

 

Which is good - because as a CISSP-certified IT Security Manager, this is just one of the things I'm supposed to be good at. ;) :cool:
