Actually, It is my first time to blog. I think maybe I have never had enough time to blog, but I intended to cross that barrier and here I am. So, I decided to share that experience. Once Samer published the announcement, "Here is your chance", I told myself, and so I clicked the link and started to join our blog.
It was then when the blog asked for the email and password, when my hacker spirit got aroused and remembered the phishing technique at once. "The barrier is back, again"; No offense Samer, but I thought you maybe phishing us :)
"Even if it was a phishing operation, I won't let is stop me", and so I created a new G-mail account just for blogging. But what is phishing in the first place, The term phishing is a variant of fishing, probably influenced by phreaking and alludes to the use of increasingly sophisticated lures to "fish" for users' financial information and passwords.
Phishers usually duplicate the login forms of the attacked sites, but they change the address to which login info is posted to another address where they extract those info and then redirect the user back to the normal site in order to hide from the victim that he has been freaked. But how would the victim reach the fake site from the first place, this is done by socially manipulating the victim for example via a fake email inviting him to test the new service features but unfortunately he has to login once from the following link.
Another idea of phishing maybe through blog invitations just like Samer did :P. Kidding with no offense Samer. But what about the blog spot that can collects a lot of email addresses with passwords... "I think I should destroy that barrier and investigate that topic more"
