Had our first phishing attempt:

2983351960.png

My 14 year son got this mail. Asked my wife if it was OK and she said yes :rolleyes:
The website (now not active anymore) was blocked by the smartscreen of Edge.
After testing not by Google Chrome or the Netcraft extension.
So i removed the Netcraft extension from Google Chrome and added the new Windows Defender Browser Protection extension.
Personally I still prefer Chrome above Edge, but luckily my son preferred Edge :D

Nothing like a real-life story. I was starting to think that malware is fictional...

Finally got the combination of Kaspersky Free and Comodo Firewall to work together without any problems on my system.
I disabled the decryption of Extended Validation (EV) certificates so that my bank site still has its own security certificate.
All other HTTPS websites are scanned by Kaspersky using its root certificate.
For Comodo Firewall I use @cruelsister 's settings. (y)

Isn't Kaspersky and Comodo still incompatible with each other? According to Kaspersky, Comodo Firewall is incompatible with Kaspersky products
