If you have been reading the blog for a while, you know that I take phishing examples that I receive or my co-workers receive, post them to the blog, and point out the things that you need to be careful of. I do this primarily to educate folks about what the latest threats look like, what differentiates a good phishing email from a bad phishing email, and also because it is fun (okay, I may be a little weird)! Well today is your lucky day because guess what? I got another phishing email over last weekend!

Why did I take the time to write this blog post, besides the opportunity to poke some fun at a hacker trying to steal my information or infect me with malware? The answer is to educate you on what these threats look like. The threat landscape changes almost daily so the more information we can share with each other, the safer we will all become. If you want to learn more on how hacking has changed to expose the human element of information security, watch our presentation that we gave in our webinar series called “So you think you’re immune from being hacked?".
Till next time, stay safe out there folks!
