Phishing attacks are now becoming more sophisticated day by day. Now hackers use things which are most demanded and trending. This makes more people to fall in the attack. Few days back, Microsoft released its latest version of operating system, Windows 8 and now it is the weapon of Hackers. People are getting emails that offers free Windows 8 with phishing links. Security researchers from Sophos labs have found a this new phishing email which is now hitting users' inbox.
This phishing email pretends to come from "Microsoft Windows 8 Team" and offers Microsoft's latest Windows 8 for free.

This email message reads, "This message is sent to you because, you are a member of the Microsoft window vital user, to Get the new Window 8 freely and fully protected, click the below Microsoft Window 8 premium link and submit, your info on the webpage and click update." This mail also contains a link at the bottom.
Clicking on the link takes users to a phishing page which asks users to give their username, password, email address and server domain name. Although, it is not hard to detect this phishing attack.
But there are so many phishing attacks which are really hard to detect at first look. We can only detect phishing attack with the help of URL of the page we are entering info.

We must see the page URL for our safety.
I advice users not to click on any this kind of phishing link sent via emails. If you receive this email claiming free Windows 8, simply delete it.
