LinkedIn phishing ? Think again…

When you see such an email, you don’t think that it is a phishing… After all, why would anyone steal your LinkedIn credentials, right? Nobody would request a ransom to give your credentials back, nobody would steal your email & password and try to reuse them on other websites. You have, after all, read my eBook “Improve your security” and you do have an algorithm to create a unique password for each website.   Linked In Jamie Moore has sent you a message Date: 10/25/2015 View or reply to this message Don’t want to receive e-mail notifications?

It is another stupid attempt from some careless spammers to advertise some canadian pharmacy spam.   Just erase it.

“Your messages will be deleted soon” – Facebook spam

It seems that the most research on social engineering is done these days by spammers. Using the text “You haven’t been to Facebook for a few days, and a lot happened while you were away”, the spam message contains the trigger which will make many people click on the message: “Your messages will be deleted soon” Ohhhh, so, if you don’t click on “View messages” then the messages will be deleted?. This is a good one. To all those who really think that something like this is possible: Stay calm, nobody is ever going to delete your messages. And, Facebook is not sending you such messages anyway. It is just a spam that redirects you to an online pharmacy store.
