Not all secure sites are safe

Just a friendly reminder...

Just because a website is marked as "secure" it doesn't mean that it is safe to enter data.

Case in point is this site: https://controlpanel.msoutlookonline.net/ it seems like a legitimate site but it's not a safe site. Think it's real? See what happens when you click on the "Forgot Password" link. In Chrome or Firefox, you're alerted that the site is suspicious.


This site was found searching for OWA - Outlook Web Access. It's so easy to think that it's real.

Today's Lesson

Make sure the site you are on is the right site, change your password frequently and make sure you have unique passwords on all the websites you do use. This way if your password is compromised you don't have to worry about changing passwords on multiple sites.
