What is Spoofing? 

Email spoofing is one of the best known spoofs. Since core SMTP fails to offer authentication, it is simple to forge and impersonate emails. Spoofed emails may request personal information and may appear to be from a known sender. Such emails request the recipient to reply with an account number for verification. The email spoofer then uses this account number for identity theft purposes, such as accessing the victim's bank account, changing contact details and so on.

The attacker (or spoofer) knows that if the recipient receives a spoofed email that appears to be from a known source, it is likely to be opened and acted upon. So a spoofed email may also contain additional threats like Trojans or other viruses. These programs can cause significant computer damage by triggering unexpected activities, remote access, deletion of files and more.

3 Ways to Safely Play Pokemon GO - MakeUseOf

3 Ways to Safely Play Pokemon GO - MakeUseOf | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Pokemon GO, an augmented reality (AR) mobile game that requires players to venture out into the real world to play, has courted many catastrophes. In search of rare Pokemon, players have stumbled into dangerous neighborhoods, fallen off ocean bluffs, and been robbed; all because they were completely immersed in the game. If not used carefully, Pokemon GO can be dangerous.

Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, June 9, 2014 9:06 AM

I have to agree with Gwyneth Jones in that, "there is no safety, only awareness" when teaching kids digital literacy. These are some great myths that need to be understood so that we can better equip our kids to navigate both the real and virtual world effectively.  

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, June 9, 2014 2:00 PM

Good information to also share with parents, especially about their child's digital footprint and how to keep it private.

Betty Skeet's curator insight, June 11, 2014 9:30 AM
