Tech Tip

Misdirection

This tip is a result of someone going online searching for “Brother Printer Help”. From within the search results, he clicked on the link which displayed “Free Brother Technical Support”. His click took him to a webpage that provided a number to call for support. He called the number and let the person who answered his call have access to his computer. That person disabled the computer from logging in and asked to be paid before allowing the customer/victim access back onto his own computer.
When searching for help on the internet, look at the website you will be brought to before selecting the search result. In Google, the search result website is shown above the enticing clickable hyperlink. In Bing, the website is provided below the hyperlink.
When looking at the search result supplied website address, look at the part right before the top-level domain. (.com, .net, .org, .gov, .tech, .us, .tv). Some sites try to make it look like a credible site by adding something recognizable to the link or changing something just enough to not catch your eye. Like “Gooogle.com” or “HPSupport.scam.com”. For this last example given, “HPSupport.hp.com” would be a more trusted site since it comes from “HP.com” and the example was from “scam.com”.
Another thing with Hyperlinks to watch for. You have probably noticed that some text in web pages can bring you to another webpage. Usually these hyperlinks are text with lines under them. You click on the phrase like “More Info” and be taken to another website. If you place your mouse on top of the underlined phrase without clicking (hover over), the real destination web address will show at the bottom left corner of the browser window. A trick some websites use is to give you a web address to click on, but the hyperlink brings you to somewhere else. You could be clicking on “safesite.com” hyperlink that click takes you to “scam.com”. The best practice is to type the web address (URL) you want to go to directly into the browsers address bar. The next best thing would be to verify the hyperlink by hovering over it and looking at its true destination at the bottom left corner of the browser window to ensure you will not be misdirected before clicking.
