Web – Email Security

 

Dear All,

Yesterday one of our Branch Members received an email purporting to be from another of our Branch Members. It commenced, ‘Salutations …….’ and then invited the recipient to click on an attached link.

The Member, sensibly, didn’t click on the link thinking it to be suspicious and contacted the sender.

Apparently this member had their system hacked sometime in the past and one of their email contacts was the above Member who received the email.

I know the above seems confusing but I have removed all personal details to protect our members identities, but there is a clear message: DO NOT OPEN ANY LINKS FROM EMAILS THAT APPEAR TO BE SUSPICIOUS.

Kind regards

Roy Scanes
Secretary

Chelmsford Branch NARPO

 

Chrome and Firefox Phishing Attack Uses Domains Identical to Known Safe Sites & “Is Your Home Router Safe?”

Now some additional information regarding Web – Email Security and related subjects from Brendan Foy the webmaster for this site and General Manager of ConnaughtCT Ltd.

As the future of the world becomes less secure, with serious threats of wars in both the Far East (North Korea) and in the Middle East (Syria), be assured as soon as there is any form of declaration or action that creates a full-scale conflict the security of the Internet will come under attack. The future of the world as we know it most likely will come to and end. The world banking systems will collapse along with world reaching organisations such as the Stock Markets, Airlines etc.

It is a bleak view but unfortunately very realistic. There has been a massive increase in Cyber Attacks and the most threatened area at the moment is Home Internet Routers.
