Be aware of BlueHost email phishing

Even the best of us can trip up occasionally – even techos!
A technical associate was recently deceived by a phishing email and ended up handing over his hosting details.

These devious emails look like the real thing to try to steal information from you like credit card details etc., but on this occasional BlueHost account details. See the email below – it looks real doesn’t it ?

To quick way of exposing many phishing emails is to carefully review the link to see if it actually goes where it appears to.

While the link above appears to be from BlueHost if you hover your mouse over the link, in this example the link actually goes to my-taid.ru (a Russian domain)
