Interesting read. FYI: If you're not subscribed to The New Yorker, listen to the hour-long podcast.
In the browser world, between Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge, Edge wins out with over 99% success rate in preventing phising sites. Of course, there is no mention of Safari (Apple Mac) and other browsers like Opera, Brave, Ecosia. No matter, you'll still encounter the big three somewhere in your browsing/surfing experience. Here is an indepth article about Phishing sites. Read. You have been informed.
One of my sites was compromised; in computer lingo, it was attacked by some hackware where if you clicked on one of the search engine results for that site, it redirected you to another site - similar to "phishing." It ended up taking me the better part of half the night and morning to clean it up. Although, it's a rarity, and the site has been indexed through Google since its inception, it was an unpleasant, icky experience. This is where we are: No matter how vigilant, tech savvy and security-conscious, up to date one continues to maintain a site, there are exponential vulnerabilities. The ubiquitous malware and attempted breaches are only going to get worse. I am in the process of phasing out website and logo creation, while maintaining and updating the ones I've created. If a client requests help with their site, I am available to give some technical advice but I will not be taking on new clients for website creation.
