Recent phishing emails from “Microsoft”

May 29, 2018

Microsoft Phishing example

Recieved any phishy emails lately? We’ve noticed an upspike in fake emails pretending to be big IT companies such as Microsoft and Apple. These emails pretend that you need to change your password or enter your bank details or something similar in order to scam your details from you. This can then be used to commit fraud, identity theft and other cybercrimes. According to an ACCC report, $174,913 Australian dollars have been lost this year to phishing attacks.

Above you can see an example of a phishing email with some red-flags highlighted. Make sure to always be suspicious of ANY email you recieve. It is a good idea to always double-check the sender address and read the entire email before clicking any links or attachments. If anything stands out as suspicious then don’t risk it!

Check out The ACCC’s Scamwatch for a better idea on how scams effect everyday Australians.

Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user’s side decrease. The only thing the user’s computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system’s interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud’s network takes care of the rest.” An everyday example of cloud computing, that most people have encountered, can be found within web-based email accounts like, gmail, hotmail and yahoo.
