Phishing and Spam IQ Quiz by SonicWALL

Phishing and Spam IQ Quiz by SonicWALL

I really didn't expect to get 100% right on this quiz, but I did. There were some questions in which it was not clear to me whether the thing was a phish or not, but if I had received something like it I would have treated it as a phish.

I think this was a very good and useful exercise. On the results page at the end you can click a "Why?" link for information about why each example was, or wasn't, a phish.

Good on SonicWALL for hosting this quiz.

I guess the bottom line is to be very suspicious of links in emails. There are some sneaky bastards out there.
