Are You Being Phished?

Don’t fall for the bait. Check everything twice. Hackers are phishing and they are not looking for fish.

What is Phishing?
Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to get sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by disguising oneself as another entity.

Phishing tactics have evolved into more diverse techniques, from simple phishing emails to phishing via https. Recently, Microsoft uncovered a spear phishing attack aimed directly at them. Luckily, they were able to catch the attack before any real damage was done. Microsoft published its discovery and gave advise to everybody on how to avoid such attacks. Daniyal Malik summarizes the events in his article.
