I have family and friends who are constantly on their phones.  They use these devices for most aspects of their lives.  I tend to use mine as a phone.  I know I am a dinosaur.

I was watching a webinar and the presenter went through how to uncover e-mail phishing on a PC.  It was quite through.  Then he went to cellphones, here it is much easier to get caught in the phishing net.

We see on the listing in the e-mail Inbox is the spoofed name, most people to not verify that the top of the message is correct, before they are responding or clicking.  Then the criminals are in.  This was how one client’s e-mail system was penetrated, via a cell phone.

Once in, all information can become available. They can control the mail and it’s password.

Caution needs to be used where and whenever possible.
