Any idea why phishing has been on the rise? Maybe because online commerce has become routine... Go figure.

Hi, Saša--and students.

What an interesting, impressive blog!

The information on the increase of phishing and pharming was distressing. I have no idea why these practices have been on the rise . . . other than the temptation to go after "easy money" with no regard for privacy and/or damage to others (a sad comment on human nature).

I'm sure the topics listed on this blog will generate a lot of discussion among students--and anyone who reads and contributes to this blog.

Very best wishes from Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.--

Oh, I think it is just another way to take money from people...THEY will always find a new way to do it.

I'm a truck driver and I have to be very careful doing my work especially in Italy where stealing loaded trucks and take money, mobile phones and notebooks from drivers is happening every day.

I think that knowing how they do it and being careful is the best protection ve have.

So inform everyone and keep your eyes opend...
