Don’t give mail passwords to random websites

Filed under: Uncategorized — harshdeep @ 10:13 pm

In the last hour, I have got three chat messages of this form –

hey, check out this video:  <some_tinyurl_link>

The link takes me to viddyho.com that conveniently asks me to login using my GMail password.

Yea right

It hurts me to see that people are actually falling for this – even CS students. This is Common Sense 101. They should be made to write “I won’t give my passwords to arbitrary websites” on the blackboard 100 times.
