%T "Phishing Exposed: Uncover Secrets from the Dark Side"
Most of chapter one is a definition for spam, with minor mentions of
phishing. Different types of phishing messages and Websites are
listed in chapter two, with a lot of HTML code and screenshots.
Chapter three looks at email structures, email headers, and
indications of spam messages. The basic operation of the Web starts
out chapter four, which also presents more HTML phishing code and
screenshots. This is extended with malicious HTML code snippets and
lots more screenshots in chapter five. Chapter six talk about money
movement and laundering (as well as having code for botnets, for some
reason). A grab bag of random information finishes out the book in
Phishing is when a Website or email message fools you into giving away
your personal information so the bad guys can use it and steal your
money. Beyond that, the book doesn't tell you much of any use.
