True, just tricking users to do something that they are not normally do. Clever.

Nature of attacks
The nature of attacks are two folds in my view. One you trick the user so you can get a privilege access to the system and another one you know a back door that most others do not. Government sponsored ones are more likely they have a back door to the systems. System vulnerabilities are not the main paths for the attacks.

The 20-30% figure isn't surprising.  At an MIT event I went to not too long ago, one presenter talked about an email sent organization-wide that said something to the effect of: "This is a phishing email.  It is fake.  Do not click on this link" -- and found that 10% of the recipients STILL clicked the link.

One C-suite executive who clicked on the link's response when asked why he clicked it: "I wanted to see what would happen."

@nosmo: Well, sure, that's phishing too -- just a more "physical" type of phishing, compared to email phishing.

Faster and easier
I find that tossing a few carefully crafted USB sticks into the executive parking lot is easier, cheaper and more effective.
