Since my luggage (and my family off course too) is ready to go on holiday, this web log is a quick and short one.
I’ve read about this Phishing Quiz the other day. It claims to test if you distinguish a fake Web site from a real one and returns your safety grade. Since I’m very much interested in everything concerning spam fighting (see my web logs concerning this matter), I was rather curious about my score:
8 out of 10 looks at first a good result, but I’m not happy with it. It means that I was fooled 2 times and probably my personal/financial data will be misused and/or spread around for malicious use.
I claim in mitigation the fact that my wrong answers concerned US centric sites (which I will/can never use) and that, in my eyes, crucial information was left out. Maybe one did this deliberatly. One needs to promote/sell services after all.
After you’ve done the test, things are explained why a site is genuine or not, although I don’t always agree with the arguements given. It could even mean that phishing is the purpose of this web log. Anyway, give it a try and check your score. It would be nice if you put your score as comment to this web log.
