    Saving Postal Officials from Phishing

    Phishing Email: The fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords In a Phishing attack, a victim receives a message that appears to have been sent by a known contact or organization. The attack is carried out either through a malicious file attachment containing phishing software or links connecting to malicious websites. In either case, the objective is to install malware on the user's device or direct the victim to a malicious website to trick them into divulging personal and financial information, such as passwords, account IDs or credit card details.

    Phishing campaigns are often built around significant events, holidays and anniversaries or take advantage of breaking news stories, both actual and fictitious. Recently a lottery system phishing was very prevalent in the DoP, and most of the websites were taken down by our security team at CEPT. The attacker tried to trick the users as if it was the genuine India Post website and tried to take the personal information like mobile numbers.

    How to Protect from Phishing attacks

    • Think Before You Click! – It’s fine to click on links when you’re on trusted sites. Clicking on links that appear in random emails and instant messages, however, isn’t such a smart move. Hover over links that you are unsure of before clicking on them specially from Post Office computers, and refrain from opening such links and emails.

    • Never Give Out Personal Information – As a general rule, you should never share personal or financially sensitive information over the Internet.

    • Keep Your Browser Up to Date – Security patches are released for popular browsers all the time. They are released in response to the security loopholes that phishers and other hackers inevitably discover and exploit. Update them immediately.

    • Verify a Site’s Security – It’s natural to be a little wary about supplying sensitive financial information online. As long as you are on a secure website, however, you shouldn’t run into any trouble. Before submitting any information, make sure the site’s URL begins with “https” and there should be a closed lock.

    YOUR PASSWORD IS YOUR STRENGTH

    Passwords are first line of protection against any unauthorized access into your personal computer.

How to create a strong password that you can remember.

    • Enforce to adopt the 8 + 4 Rule as strong password

    • Use eight characters with one upper and one lower case, a special character like an asterisk and a number
