Author: Tim Taylor

What is Phishing?
When hackers get your information by using fictitious screens. There objective is to capture your information so they can try to sell you something.

My Space - Phishing
-You'll think you are on a companies official site with your log in and password. LOOK AT THE ADDRESS BAR. Your bank, my space, eBay will never email you "click here" and enter your login and password. If you do that they will capture your information.

Protect Yourself
When you get an email with a link don't link to it. Go to the actual site from the address bar. Changed passwords often. If you think you have been phished, contact your bank or company and change your passwords.
