Hello reader, let me explain

What is Phishing?

Phishing is a form of criminal activity using the engineering technique, in computer world means hacking information or data such as username, password, etc. Criminal will attempts to design a fake website by carried out the email address and instant messaging. Usually, those fake website looks similar to the original website. Most of the people will lack of awareness about the fake website. http://www.zone-h.org/news/id/4710














The graph above shows that, phishing is increasing from year 2002 to 2008. There have a dramatically increase from year 2007 to 2008.


Example of Phishing..

ebay

This is the first example of email phishing ebay.com

This email contain a official ebay logo on top of it. However, the link is actually not to the original ebay official website. As they make it look real and attempt to steal username and password.

This is the second example

This spam mail does not carries any name nor ebay login name, it is to uncover the password. In order to avoid this, it is recommend to open a fresh browser window instead of clicking on the link.


There are a lot of example for phishing ebay.com. Let to continue to another website which is citi bank.


How to Prevent Phishing Scam?

1) Do not reply e-mails that request for personal information.
Seeing a picture of a locked padlock in the lower right-hand corner of the BROWSER WINDOW, not the page itself.

2) Do not click on the link in suspicious e-mail.
Seeing an https:// appear in the URL instead of http://
http://security.yahoo.com/article.html?aid=2006102502

3) Use strong or different password for all accounts and change them frequently.
Do not use birthday, id no or any code that relevant to be your password.

4) Do not send any username or password through ordinary e-mail.

5) Access to business with reliable and trustful companies.
Aware with e-commerce, as sometimes we can only communicate through online.

6) Keep computer and antivirus updated to protect personal information.
Keep antivirus and computer updated will help a lot to prevent information leak especially for those who are not professional managing it.

7) Only use one credit card to shop online for easy tracking when anything happened.
When something happened, bank and holder can track and react easily, to halt transfer and disable the card.

8) Use credit card instead of debit card to shop online to prevent leak of large amount of money.

Restylane Silk is a new dermal filler, specifically formulated to improve the look of your smile. It can add volume to your lips and diminish the look of fine lines around your mouth. Restylane Silk’s unique particle gel formula, along with an ultra-fine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results — just what you need for a natural-looking smile.

Lip tissue is different from the skin of the rest of the face. The soft and sensuous tissue of the lips is constantly stressed by how we move our mouths: eating, drinking and talking. The lips also tend to dry out more quickly than the rest of our face. Restylane Silk is designed for meticulously precise lip definition and line control for silkier, smoother lips you’ve been looking for.

I started doing web design in 1998, I have been making my living solely online since 2009. It was in 2007 I started a journey into the Internet world that would change my life. So, you can guess I watch trends very closely and I still devote 1 day a week to learning something new and keeping up with changes in the industry. We can all agree the Internet has exploded but the rush to sign up Local Businesses has really just boomed in the last 6 months or so. Every media or Yellowbook salesman soon found that sales were decreasing and it was harder to sell the big yellow book and started jumping on programs to sell SEO or any online service.
