What are phishing attacks and how can I defend against them?
This is a common scam where a hacker will send out an urgent email designed to alarm users into responding. These emails can appear to be from a legitimate source such as UCLA IT groups, a colleague, or your bank. These emails often contain links to phony Web sites designed to trick users into providing their personal information, including their usernames and passwords.
