Thumbs up Phishing Test

Try out this quiz: https://www.phish-no-phish.com/


Should be good for a small crash course.

Although the easiest way is to enter a wrong password, and if on a phishing site, it accepts it.

If you'll excuse me, I'm off to collect my new lottery winnings, but first I have to re-affirm by banking info through trusted third parties.
