The images displayed below are a combination of images which are phishing attacks and real images. Challenge your cybersecurity awareness and spot which ones are real and which ones are phony:

Spoiler Alert: Answers are below.

 

Answer: Images 2 and 3 are phishes. Let’s see why:

Image 1 details: The image shows an email from Lego with Christmas deals. No obvious red flags stand out.

 

Image 2 details: The image is purportedly that of the Disney online store. The website has several hyperlinks to take you to linked pages. While most of the links appear legit, take a look at the “Contact Us” link. Clicking that will load your default mail client to send an email to that email address. The “shopdesney.com” domain in that address is clearly a fake. An email sent to this address will likely end up being the first of many exchanges where the scammer will launch cyber attacks and try to steal your money, information, or both. This one is a phishing attack!

If you see a message like this, chances are that either the website or your browser may be have been targeted by a malicious hacker and a victim of a phishing attack.
