Ways to Detect a Phishing Email

1. The message is sent from a public email domain
No legitimate organisation will send emails from an address that ends ‘@gmail.com’.

Not even Google. Most organisations, except some small operations, will have their own email domain and company accounts. For example, legitimate emails from Google will read ‘@google.com’.

If the domain name (the bit after the @ symbol) matches the apparent sender of the email, the message is probably legitimate.

Top tip: Look at the email address, not just the sender

Your inbox might display a name, like ‘DHL’, and the subject line. When you open the email, you already know (or think you know) who the message is from and jump straight into the content.

When crooks create their bogus email addresses, they often have the choice to select the display name, which doesn’t have to relate to the email address at all.

They can, therefore, use a bogus email address that will turn up in your inbox with the display name DHL. Where as the email id will be DHL@notice256.getaccess.com. The fact that the part after @ is some random digits and characters should itself flag a concern.

2. Domain name is misspelt:

Google the domain name on the email (part after @) to check if the business is legitimate.

A hacker bought the domain ‘gimletrnedia.com’ (that’s r-n-e-d-i-a, rather than m-e-d-i-a)

3. Attachments:

This will either be an infected attachment that you’re asked to download or a link to a bogus website.

Suspicious links

You can spot a suspicious link if the destination address doesn’t match the context of the rest of the email.

For example, if you receive an email from Netflix, you would expect the link to direct you towards an address that begins ‘netflix.com’.

Unfortunately, many legitimate and scam emails hide the destination address in a button, so it’s not immediately apparent where the link goes to.

Thankfully, this is straightforward: on a computer, hover your mouse over the link, and the destination address appears in a small bar along the bottom left of the browser.

On a mobile device, hold down on the link and a pop-up will appear containing the link.

Joy, the Internet is Here!

Oh jolly good we said

The internet is here!
Oh jolly good we said
We can persecute the living
And celebrate the dead

We’ll talk up all the old things
And make the present bad
And look forward to a future
That no one yet has had

We’ll become experts in all matters
That once were out of our bounds
And run select secret societies
All hidden underground

We’ll mine for money whilst sleeping
And see planets beyond the moon
Whilst never leaving our armchairs
Or the comfort of our room

And when the children’s voices
Vanish from the streets
We’ll put it down to friends on Facebook
And watch their Google meets

We’ll research how to garden
And go online and buy the tools
Then contact our local handyman
Because we’re told outside is for the fools

We'll be asked by the Facebook Gods
'What is on your minds'
And answer them with integrity
and then be moderated for being unkind

Yes, the Internet has made man-kind
And for that we are forced to pay
Without the knowing of what the future holds
As for hindsight, we’ll turn that knowledge away

A thought provoking article for this mornings readers..🌄
Australia's two most populous states are trialling facial recognition software that lets police check people are home during COVID-19 quarantine, expanding trials that have sparked controversy to the vast majority of the country's population.
While the recognition technology has been used in countries like China, no other democracy has been reported as considering its use in connection with coronavirus containment procedures.
The UN has warned against facial rcognition technology, arguing it could pose a serious danger to human rights -
"Facial recognition technology might seem like a convenient way to monitor people in quarantine but ... if something goes wrong with this technology, the risk of harm is high".
