Eighth episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.
Black Friday is coming !!! And then Christmas !!! The rush for gifts and compulsive online shopping is starting!
But beware of fraudulent SMS notifying alleged delivery attempts.
In this episode we warn against Smishing and other frauds affecting the mobile devices: it is a recent neologism that combines the acronym SM (Short Message), with the word Phishing.
These messages often contain malicious links, suitably designed to steal important credentials to act in the name and on behalf of the victim. Or links to sites that contain malware that can install itself without arousing suspicion on smartphones, tablets or other devices that the victim uses to visit these sites.
We cannot directly protect you from Smishing but we certainly have weapons against Phishing and against links conveyed through Smishing.
