I’ve been browsing through my junk email – I’m not quite sure why I’m bothering to do so though sometimes I find a couple of entertaining messages.
I particularly like the one that starts “Dear Member, you’ve been selected for a free holiday…”, which is followed by a lovely picture of a beach et al. Where am I supposed to be a member of?
Another bizarre one is titled “How I legally rob banks” – hmmm. Opening the message reveals a professional looking image that looks like a book cover.
I wonder how many people fall for such scams. I guess enough people must do so otherwise the F£31n5 Spammers wouldn’t bother.
Incidentally I investigate interesting security matters using a virtual machine that’s configured not to save the changes hence when I turn it off all is gone. I’m also careful to ensure that I use least privilege and that the virtual machine is isolated from other hosts on the network.
