    Alas, my grandmother died many years ago. However, I shall find your video useful for explaining phishing to my seven grandchildren.

    Agreed, Victoria. I've worked with computers since grad school, and it is my nieces, nephews and grandchildren who click obliviously, forward everything on the internet, and have no security setting awareness on social media. Generally, I like Sophos' posts, but please don't make the assumption of an inverse correlation between age and computer literacy. Thank you.
