Suspicious & Malicious Email


Suspicious & Malicious Email

As mentioned in several different blog posts, email is such a common form of communication today that we use it in our everyday lives.  Unfortunately, just like everything else on the internet, there are risks when opening suspicious emails.  When discussing the future of security, according to Websense, “email threats will evolve to new levels.  Domain generation algorithms and other emerging techniques bypass current security, and professionals are becoming the preferred targets.  And malicious email attachments are making a comeback”.  When using your email account, it is important to properly dispose of emails that you believe contain spam or seem suspicious.
