|Winston supervising me learning new tricks
I got an email this morning which looked like it was sent from Apple (I’m a Mac user) notifying me that my password had been reset and that if I had not initiated that action, I should click on the link they provided to the Apple iforgot site.
So I did what I always do when I have a computer question. I emailed my son-in-law. He shot me a reply right away that it was 100% spam. How did he know?
He told me that, if I moved my cursor over the link — not click on it, just move the cursor over!– I could see the actual address. I did that and it turned out to be some Chilean website, oozing with anticipation at either uploading a virus onto my computer or hooking some vital information.
I may be the only one in the world who didn’t know this trick. But just in case I’m not, I’m passing it along!
