Just for a change, an ESET blog on phishing that I didn’t write, though Rob Waugh does quote me at some length:
Rob points out that:
Phishing is unique among cyber attacks – it doesn’t rely on weaknesses in computer software, or new vulnerabilities – it relies, initially at least, on human gullibility.
This means that devices users often think of as ‘immune’ to cyber attacks – such as smartphones – are in fact the perfect vehicle for phishing attacks.
