I opened a fishing link today. Fortunately, Outlook saved my arse. Who knows what kind of vile web code that would have had a go at my browser!

Why did I open the link?

Well, I use Visual Studio, and have an MSDN account, and the mail is very similar to earlier advertising emails from Microsoft – hence I was duped.

However – if you read the fine print in the actual link, you quite easily see that this is not an MS web address at all (as the red text in Norwegian says on the image).

Lesson learned.

Tip: Read the fine print!

Note: Link has been redacted.
