LinkedOut?

Image result for phishing

I’m very fond of all the people out there who have nothing better to do than go on phishing expeditions and screw up my life online.

In an article titled “LinkedIn requests from strangers can land you in hot water,” we peons of the Information Superhighway have yet another “friendly” site to be wary of. Fantastic.

I think the following quote sums it up best, mostly because Ms. Wikoff uses the word nefarious. That’s my Word of the Day. (Ex. Curlers and book club members are a nefarious lot because they spend too much time sending their rocks down slick surfaces whilst reading epics like Robert Rankin’s Nostradamus Ate My Hamster.)

“It’s got trust built into it, and hackers leverage that trust to their own nefarious purposes.”

— Allison Wikoff, Senior Researcher, SecureWorks
