re: Series Of Convincing Spam Runs Part Of One Massive Advanced Attack Campaign


People
have to be aware of the digital identity that they already have on the web Furthermore
they need to be aware that your digital identity contains all your basic
information; comments, political views, personal views, employer, and family life.
Take for example your Facebook profile it contains name, location, birthday,
and places of study or employment. Kellerman makes a great point; this particular
group is using them to gain financial information, but what about this sort of
attack being used for something other than gaining financial information?- LetGs hope that Gblast phishingG or Gdynamite
phishing does not become an all too familiar term!
Is there any preventive measures
that user can take to help safeguard themselves against these sort of attacks
in the future?
