You Are All Idiots

Yesterday I made this post showing me investigating a really bad phishing attack. The reason it was bad is that the attack did absolutely nothing and redirected to Instagram with no extra anything and even after scraping the web page to bypass the .htaccess—The page was devoid of life.

Of course, my Instagram post got a couple comments which I’d like to pick apart real quick to help answer future comments and DMs like such since the phishing attack seems to be hitting lots of people.

Disclaimer: I try to insult every comment in this post not because I actually hate the comment but because I can.

Alright, I have no clue how someone ‘ended up falling for that’ or how you know someone fell for that or what actually happened when someone did that, but sure, you are now also 100% trustworthy and not just spewing bullshit. The only trustworthy1 part of this comment is ‘don’t click on every link you see’.

ticescreamerss Lmao I didn’t click on to this cause I knew it was a hack. It’s not a good idea to believe someone who says your “name” of instagram

Congrats on having a brain so big and powerful and superior to see that this was a hack, Unfortunately, you didn’t read the post that dissected the attack and chose to reply to the Instagram announcement of the post instead.

Noone cares. But on a serious and out-of-character note, yes this post got a lot of attention from people I’ve never met.

_bluebunny_arts_ (replying to @x._absolite._.art_.x) it also said I was logged in my account somewhere else in Dallas and I had to make a new password

This comment either A) Did not read the post and confused a weird coincidence with the attack or B) Read the post and confused a weird coincidence with the attack. I have no idea how this could’ve happened, but it did and I’m lost. Still, activate two-factor2 and you’ll be a thousand times safer.
