Spotting Scammy Web Addresses

Posted July 17th, 2017 at 11:28 am.

How can you tell if a web page is legitimate or designed to steal your sensitive data? Look at the URL below:

https://brynmawr.edu.webmail-log-in.net/

Would you log in to access your email from this address? If you did, you’d be giving your password to a crafty cyber criminal. Being able to identify phony web addresses (URLs) can help you protect your sensitive data. Take 5 minutes to play LITS’ new InfoSec game show: Hook, Line, & Sinker. In the first episode, learn how to identify fake URLs and then practice your new skills! Visit this Moodle course to play: https://moodle.brynmawr.edu/course/view.php?id=755. Click on the “Log in as guest” button to access the course.

LITS’ Spotlight Series has returned to provide tips, tricks, and other educational resources on phishing detection. Questions? Contact the Help Desk at help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440.
