Spammers and phishers pay close attention to current events. They incorporate scandals, weather or political events into spampaigns because these kinds of events draw our attention to the event�and away from the cues and clues we might otherwise notice in an email message that would cause us to be suspicious. The subject lines of this week's spotlighted spam attempt to exploit the unemployed with an undeniably attractive job offer from Facebook. Or Amazon. Or Google. No, eBay. OK... craigslist.� The links embedded in this enticing message take you to a job advertising scam landing page. All the links on that... Continue reading

Remember that 'ancient' artifact that US President Hussein Obama gave Iranian President Hassan Rohani during their meeting at the UN? Well, it's not so ancient. In fact, it's about as 'ancient' as my 6th child - vintage 1999. Not only is it a fake, it’s a bad fake. The saga of the griffin, from its production to its much-touted return to Iranian President Rouhani during his recent visit to New York, demonstrates how fakers of ancient art fool the gullible wealthy with the connivance of museums and scholars. More profoundly, it shows how ancient (or not so ancient) artifacts are... Continue reading
