It’s not always easy to spot a phishing message in your inbox. In the internet age today, phishing messages can be so well crafted that they pass for real apps and services in their HTML message design. Only someone paying close attention to the fact that they weren’t expecting a link from a friend, someone unknown or were looking closely at the URL of the links in the message may notice. Users in Hong Kong were the target of this type of attack via Dropbox recently, which you can catch over at CSOONLINE.
What can be considered the most interesting yet scary portion of these events is that the attack came from a valid DropBox account.
It pays in spades to be vigilant with incoming messages – expected or otherwise – to ensure that they were intended for you inbox, and from a legitimate source.
