Time to lighten up a bit. This hokey "PSA" about phishing is really true, but the payoff in hilarity comes at the end. Pay careful attention to the "date" that Bob managed to finally get from that online dating site. Hope your July was great and here's to a fantastic month of August!

Humor, Security

Hey, it's Funny Friday! And I have a very funny video for you (if you consider British dry humour funny - I do). How about distracting hackers from stealing information by titillating them with erotic romance? This was an April Fool's joke from Sophos in 2010. Watch and enjoy and have a great...

This isn't exactly security related, but it's a good laugh and we all need to take things less seriously now and then. Saw this on the Petri IT Knowledgebase site:

Oíche Shamhna agus tá na Nollag ar an lá céanna?

Posted by: Ken Harthun

Now we're having fun. In the spirit of the celebratory season, when brain cells are being destroyed by the millions, I think it's a good idea to stimulate those that remain.
