Let’s go phishing

Why do people get conned so easily, if you know their interests, you’re probably getting warm to the answer. This is what is called a ‘targeted attack‘.

  • Your dog’s name is Spot


  • Pictures of Spot is found on your Facebook profile which is not locked down…hummm…


Dear Bob,

We have your dog Spot, click on the link to see the photo.


If you want him back, you’ll need to transfer one million dollars to our Nigerian account.

The Enemy.


Breaking it down, targeted phishing is:

  • Addressed in a personal nature
  • Something to get you to react
  • Consequence should you fail to act

Guess what happens next…you are now owned by The Enemy. Thankyou for your co-operation.
