Phishing Fail

TL;DR - Go phish.

I remember that silly cartoon I created about a MacQuarium.

There were easter eggs inside the cartoon (if you can find them) which contained some ‘phishing’ references.

But what is 'phishing’? heres the definition from Wikipedia.

Phishing is the act of attempting to acquire information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money) by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Wikipedia

Today I announce that I would have been potential victim of phishing. (except the 'phishermen’ failed miserably.)

Well would you look at that,

no-replay@ups.com

this should be no surprise that this is a phishing scam.

This is the actual phishing attachment in the email where it says:

filename="invoice...

If you opened that html link , you would have opened a pandora’s box.

This is just a typical UPS Quantum View Phishing attempt.

If a link or email you get looks dodgy,

Don’t take the bait.
