Recognizing phishing plus 5 hot topics at CES.

I’ve just posted an article on how to recognize phishing messages on the ESET “We Live Security” blog.

Summary: While phishing-related malware is still mostly Windows targeting, attacks that rely purely on social engineering and fake web sites might be delivered by any platform, including smartphones and tablets. The more cautious you are, the better informed you are, and the more you think before you click, the more chance you have of leaving phishing craft stranded.

Complete with two horrendous visual puns.

And Cameron Camp, my colleague at ESET North America, has kicked off a visit to Las Vegas for CES (the International Consumers Electronics Show 2015) with five hot topics. He’s promised to follow up with a deeper look at digital invasion and privacy concerns in his next post.

Summary: With nearly 160,000 lust-ridden techies, corporate denizens and a few of us security types descending on a slightly crisp wintery Las Vegas to see what all the fuss is about at CES 2015, here are a few things to keep an eye out for this year at the show.
