Hacks Scams and Other Online Terrors
Network Box's recent guide about malware and net scams had been written specifically to assist IT managers in educating a company's staff on common online dangers, which includes techniques for them to identify and shore up any security holes in their network or workstation. The article enumerates the many types of common hacker attacks, with instances and citations for each, as well as easy ways for both the IT department and company employees to prevent getting victimized by any of these so-called perils.

Hoaxes: As for the hoaxes part of the Network Box guide, it displays the login page of a hoax site (impersonating a Natwest login page) next to the actual site to demonstrate how complex and advanced some of the scam websites have become nowadays. It recommends to users to always be on the lookout for the padlock symbol (which indicates if the site is authentic or not), the true URL instead of a bogus URL, and if the site contains https on its address instead of http. Such simple precautions can be easily overlooked by unaware or negligent users.
