The Phishing Flow Chart

11 Feb/10

Phishing is a serious problem on today’s Internet even with phishing protections in email clients, web browsers and security software in place as those security solutions only deal with already reported phishing scams and sites and not new ones.

Internet users therefor need to know about phishing and how to identify phishing emails from safe emails.

The Login Helper blog has created a phishing flow chart that outlines the process of analyzing an email to determine if it is a phishing email or not.

The flow chart addresses the three biggest email dangers: Attachments, links and social engineering. The chart has been color coded for easier recognition of safe and dangerous elements in emails. All red elements in the flow chart are considered dangerous while blue elements are considered safe.

The chart furthermore provides basic suggestions on how to react when possible dangerous elements are encountered, for attachments it would be to save them locally and check them with a service like Virus total online.

Following the chart leads either to a safe or dangerous rating for the email that is being analyzed.
