Phishing Attacks

Watering Hole Attacks

Pretexting

Tailgating

Baiting

Link above for more information on social engineering attack tactics.

Lately my Hotmail inbox has more social engineering attacks than ever before, way lot more. Hackers have found social engineering attacks pay the bills.

Let's say most hackers think i live in USA, so it is easy to spot fake emails. If they look like originating from Canada, i just delete them anyway, even if they look trustworthy. Unsolicited emails look suspicious to me, the more so if money is involved.
