Web Links – Easy path to game over

Lots of news lately about old stuff…Cryptolocker, Zeus…

How does it all start?

Get an email, click on link, get malware, game over…

The email is generally a SocEng attempt to get you to click on the link:

  • Originating from an ‘authority’
  • A course of action is urgently required
  • Failure to comply will result in a ‘penalty’

Simple, don’t click on the link.

If in doubt, get a phone number and contact them directly.
