Too Smart for Phishing?

May 31, 2017

Because phishing attempts tend to be so obvious, we seem to think we are impervious to it and perhaps we think we're too smart to fall for it.

On the podcast, Reply All (a Gimlet Media production), contributor Phia Bennin recently attempted to phish other team members and... it was successful more often than not. Even when it wasn't successful, the pretend hacker was able to learn information about people.  

 


One of the many things I found fascinating was the phishing emails appeared to have been sent by their own colleagues.  Would you be able to spot the ruse between these two email addresses?

Give it a listen to solve that puzzle and hear more about how it's done.  My takeaway? Two-factor authentication will not save you so be very paranoid, it can happen to anyone!
