What I've Learned From Identifying 35,000 Phishing Websites. Giving Users a Second Chance.

A scammer's task is not only to get their victim to click a link in an email but also to maintain the illusion their phishing site is legitimate. We train our users to identify phishing emails and not to click on links in anything that looks suspicious. Sometimes they miss the warning signs and click tainted links anyway. Then they're staring at a fraudulent site. At that moment, there's a second chance for them to spot a fake site if they know what to look for. You can find plenty of advice online on how to spot a phishing emails. However, there's not as much good information on spotting phishing web sites. In this session, we'll look at real-world examples drawn from over 35,000 phishing sites I reviewed as a participant in a community-based phishing clearinghouse. We'll examine:
* Some obvious and not so obvious phish spotting clues.
* Tricks scammers use to keep the victim from realizing they're being phished.
* How phishing URLs are manipulated to appear legitimate.
* The problem with those pesky account verification questions
