How to spot Phishing mails - Cyber Security

What is Phishing? Phishing is an attempt to steal your information by promising you something that you were never expecting. The attempt is to lure you into a trap - which may or may not also include social engineering - and make you give away all your details in lieu of something huge but fake.

In most cases, the phishing emails promise you loads of money and ask you for your information. In other cases, they direct you to a lookalike website and capture (steal) all your data. For example, they may make an email look like it is from PayPal and when you click on the links embedded in the email, it takes you to a website that looks like PayPal but is not PayPal. When you enter your information, it is stolen.

Say No to War

Don't believe whatsapp forwards about border news blindly.

Media, both Indian and Pakistani, is craving for war. The social media mood, if taken seriously, people from both sides want war. They want full blown war.

However, war is not the solution. War brings destruction of lives and property, affects environment, and thus, the lives of people. In event of war, the economies of both countries will suffer.

There'll be loot arson etc on both sides of the border if a full blown war erupts between India and Pakistan. That is to say that even civilians will suffer. And why get soldiers killed if a common point can be reached between India and Pakistan.

Shouldn't we give a second chance to peace? Just stop arrogance and don't pursue aggression. Neither Pakistan nor India can afford any setbacks that will pop up in case of a war.
