Internet users should be wary of internet hacking syndicates when surfing the internet, and not to share personal data in social media. This was among the matters highlighted in a special talk titled ‘Phishing’ yesterday morning at the Cyber Battle, Capture The Flag 2018 Awareness Event.

In his talk, Awang Muhammad Ariffin bin Haji Sabli from I.T Protective Security Services Sendirian Berhad (ITPSS) reminds internet users to be more cautious in receiving links from unidentified sources making special offers either through Whatsapp or personal computers.
