Phishing: the Click of Death

New Article from ESET: Phishing: the Click of Death

Recently we realized that from time to time when people find a live link in one of our blogs, they click on it to see where it goes, even though the context might suggest that the link could be malicious. So we thought it might be a good idea to set up a link so that people who clicked incautiously would see a harmless site that would, hopefully, educate them into being more careful in future. In fact, I first tried this out with the ‘simulated phishing site’ here, but we wanted to provide a more comprehensive resource, and that’s what this article is for.
