5. Escape Phishing Attacks
If you're the target of a phishing attack, an email message sent to you appears to be from a source you recognize. It uses links to take you to a fake website that tries to trick you into typing your login information, which will give the attackers access to your real account. Efforts are being made to reduce this danger, including the recently announced DMARC collaboration, which once adopted should help assure that messages are from who they claim to be. Until this and similar efforts reduce the danger, avoid clicking links in email messages, even those that appear to be from within your own company. Instead use a bookmark you already have or type in an address by hand for a site you wish to visit.
