You know we are trouble when the FBI head could be duped by hackers:
In a speech in San Francisco, FBI Director Robert Mueller confessed he has given up online banking after nearly falling victim to a phishing attack. His remarks came the same day authorities in Egypt and the U.S. charged 100 people in an international phishing ring that was targeting American banks.
FBI Director Robert Mueller has apparently sworn off online banking after nearly falling victim to a phishing attack.
During a speech Oct. 7 at the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco , Mueller recounted being “just a few clicks away from falling into a classic Internet phishing scheme.”
A transcript of the speech is posted here. In it, Mueller notes that the phishing e-mail that almost tricked him looked “pretty legitimate.”
