Question: what was the first Phishing tale?
Answer: Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
Remember that witch in disguise with the poisoned apple? Yep, that’s it.
An imposture sending you a gift link and hoping you would take a small bite and fall for it.
And what a fitting author’s name to that story too – The Grimm Brothers. Grim indeed.
Phishing has evolved since and branched out to Spear phishing, Whaling, Scareware, Pharming and Smishing. You name it, ChatGPT will explain it.
So what is the moral of the story, kids? Don’t trust strangers bearing gifts. Same old moral in the phishing email realm. Class dismissed.
