Yet another Phishing Attack #DontClickThatLink #Infosec

So I get up this morning, check email and what is waiting for me. A phishing email. Okay lets do a little analysis to see how to detect this really quick.

1) My paypal account is not linked to this email address, so that’s a big give away.

2) The from line is just amateurish. It does not even say paypal.com

3) When I hover the mouse over the link, I can see the actual text of the url in the bottom left had corner. Yea’ I’m pretty sure paypal does not use a .army address.
