We are pleased to announce a new resource available to our community, the Phish Bowl. It is as simple as it sounds! As we spot phishing emails circulating inboxes at U of T, we will post the message contents and a screenshot of the message to our collection of phishing emails into the Phish Bowl.
By providing a collection of verified phishing messages, the community can use this resource to cross check messages they receive when they are not sure if the email message is a phishing attempt or not. In addition, by accessing this resource on regular basis, we hope that faculty, staff and students can become skilled at instantly spotting phishing messages by recognizing common indicators.
