even the experts can be fooled by phishing sites
Yep, even me.
McAfee SiteAdvisor have released a phishing quiz.
I went in with supreme confidence ... I can ace this quiz said I ... nope, I got 9 out of 10.
"So which question did you get wrong?:, I hear you ask. It was the question about Chase Bank - I immediately rejected the *real* site because it asked for a Social Security number. My thinking, as a non-American, was that a legitimate banking site would not be so silly as to desensitize their users to dangerous internet practice by asking them to enter their Social Security Number into an online loan application - it seems I was wrong. Anyway, because of my reaction to the request for a Social Security Number I only glanced at the other site and was fooled.
It just goes to show - never make assumptions when dealing with phishing sites. And don't get over-confident; over-confidence leads to mistakes.
