LogMeIn Phishing Email
 

By: David Rader II on September 07, 2014 @ 2:27 PM

All LogMeIn users beware. New phishing attempt trying to get people to "Verify LogMeIn account" via email.

Of course, most experienced tech users will have their "Status Bar" turned on - the most important and common method of verifying a links validity prior to click clicking on it. Simply hold your mouse pointer over the link ant it shows you the actual link location at the bottom.



Unless JavaScript is turned on in my email client, this status bar has never been faked. However, on a website while it's not usually faked, it is totally possible with just a little JavaScript. For further link=validating, you can right click the link and review options that will allow you to see the real link.

If you do NOT have your status bar turned on in any email client or web-browser, it's the single most important advice I can give as a tech user. KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING.

Search... "How to turn on status bar for [email client]"

or

Search... "How to turn on status bar for [web browser]"

Usually you can turn the status bar on within just a few clicks and it usually stays on for Good.
