A closer look
Bob received the following email the other night.
What do you think is suspicious here? Let’s analyze the email:
The sender's email address is suspicious and you don't know this email sender personally.
Lucrative offer in the subject line suggests it's too good to be true.
You received an email during irregular business hours.
These words show a sense of urgency.
The sender is asking you to click on a link or open an attachment that you don't know about. The URL or the link has a spelling error which is hard to notice.
After explaining all of this, Alice asked Bob to change all his passwords and bank account login credentials to be safe. Thankfully, the attacker Eve had not yet acted on the information given by Bob and he was safe.
