Facebook Phishing Scam

Wednesday, April 07, 2021

Be on the lookout for a Facebook-themed phishing attack that is going around. Phishing attacks are one of the most common ways for hackers to trick people into giving them sensitive information. The latest phishing email appears to come from Facebook. It starts with “Hi User” and tells the user that there is an issue with their account. In order for them to resolve the issue they need to verify their account and log into their Facebook. They inform the user that the link will expire in 72 hours. When the user clicks on the link it takes them to a look-alike Facebook login page. This page is a fake! Any sensitive information that is entered on this page like the user’s login information will go straight to the hackers. This email also has poor grammer and a couple of misspellings in it.

Transitioning to Working From Home

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Work has looked a little different these past few months. Our world transitioned from going to work every day to working at home with the whole family. During these challenging times, we have had to juggle getting a laptop or moving our desktop home, making sure our security is top-notch, and taking extra precautions when working with kids around. It’s been a tough change for all of us, but Links is always here to help make the transition easy.

 

What we have been doing to help:

-Setting up desktop computers at home

-Providing laptops for people to use at home

-We have been putting security measures in place, including VPN .. so the security is the same at home as it is in the office

-Reminding customers to lock their computers when they are away from them and store them out of children’s reach. (We know that children love to “work” like their Moms & Dads)
