Fact vs. Fiction Archive

Fiction:
If a link in an e-mail looks familiar, itís safe to click on it.

Fact:
Attackers want to convince you that their link will take you to a legitimate website, when theyíre really directing you to a malicious one designed to install malware or trick you into revealing a password. If you hover over a link within an e-mail and the URL doesnít match the description of the link, it might be directing you to a phishing site. Donít take a chance on an unfamiliar URL.
