4:  Search Engine Phishing or Malvertising

These are cleverly disguised ads that offer something great, like a vacation.  When you click on the ad, you are directed to a site that requires all of your information.

5:  Pharming

This is when hackers take a popular site, like banks, and re-route the incoming people to their website which is very similar to what it should be!

Beware if:

If the website looks different than it did yesterday or the last time you were there, leave the page and retype the address.

Make sure that there is a picture of a lock on the page that you are on, otherwise your data is not safe.

If you get an unsolicited email with a link, don’t touch the link.  You are better off just deleting the email.
