    Brilliant tips! It is scary how many tricks those people can pull! The other day, I recieved an email on my yahoo mail that was titled by yahoo support and in which asked me about many information. It also had an attached warning to shut down my email if I didn't provide the information they asked for! It was kind of convincing because it appeared to come from Yahoo themselves, but I felt something wrong and decided not to act on it. I am sure that many others have fall into the trap!

    Great security tips! The SSL certificates issue is something I didn't really know about!
    I am sure, sooner or later, there will be more attacks and more security tips to spare, I'll be waiting for you to let us know of them :)

    Great tips. The phishers are getting better every day. You say, “Don’t trust strangers“! but sometimes they come in the guise of people you know.
