The banter is great, but it’s not all fun and games. This ZDNet article about a creative new attack using compromised websites to send fake certificate warnings back to victims, with a “click here” button to make everything all better, is one of the most creative attacks I’ve seen. It will fool people – but it won’t fool you after you play back my interview below.
Care and share to be prepared. And for people unfamiliar with digital certificates, here is a great presentation about how trust on the internet works.
Thanks to my friend and fellow author, Ted Atchley, for calling the article above to my attention.
