From the Mandiant report, describing great moments in security fails:
LOL. "Seems legit."

CSB: A few months ago, an email pops into my inbox at work. It's clearly a phishing attempt, as it came from "­I­T­H­el­p­D­esk[nospam-﹫-backwards]k­seD­pl­e­H­*c­om" and wanted me to click a link to request an "emergency quota extension" for my email. I hover over the link to see what URL it points to and it's something like So I submit the URL to (first altering the long serial number at the end). Urlquery contemplates it and reports back to me that it's trying to load from a site called "Phishguru." I look them up, and it's a company you can contract with to do phising testing on your users. It either keeps track (via the serial number) of who clicks on the link, or--if you pay for the gold service--it'll deliver training to the user right there and then. So I send an email to our lead IT security guy saying, "Hey, got this email, didn't click on the link, and oh by the way are you running a phishing test on us?" I get a nearly immediate phone call back along the lines of "OHSHAITOHSHIATOHSHIAT, please don't tell the other users we're doing this!!!" Total elapsed time from receipt of email: three minutes.

I handle computer security LIKE A BOSS.

Postscript: Found out later that about half the company clicked on the link. One person clicked on it 25 times, trying to figure out why it didn't do anything.

Krusty_the_Barbarian: a large part of the attacks are feeling you out from the outside.

So, it's like how I handled my dates as a teenager.

Alonjar: Yes, because state sponsored cyber warfare agents dont know how to use a proxy.

I've heard they're behind eight of them, in fact.

Jon iz teh kewl: /sbin/iptables -A BLACKLIST -s -j DROP
/sbin/iptables -A BLACKLIST -s ...

the fark is all that nonsense.

looks linuxy/illegal to me.

well... if you don't like iptables, you can always route those class a blocks to /dev/null0 on your closest convenient cisco/lucent/other router too... :)
