TEST YOUR UNDERSTANDING

Have you understood the dangers of phishing? Take our mini quiz to find out! 😉

QUESTION 1

You receive an email or text message from a stranger asking you to click on a link. What do you do?

A - I reply or click on the link in the email or text message

Nope! Ignore the email or text message and tell your parents or an adult. Show them what you received and tell them if you have done anything in particular. There’s no shame in telling the truth: it happens to everyone, even adults.

B - I fight back and get even on my own

Nope! Fighting back or taking revenge will not help. The people who set these traps are very intelligent. Ignore the email or text message and tell your parents or an adult. Show them what you received and tell them if you have done anything in particular. There’s no shame in telling the truth: it happens to everyone, even adults.

C - I ignore the email and tell my parents or an adult right away

Well done! That's the right answer! You should never go it alone or take things into your own hands when dealing with hackers (bad people). There’s no shame in having clicked on a bad link, for example. It happens to everyone, even adults.

QUESTION 2

You can’t wait to receive an email from Clara from the CyberVengers... Can you tell what her real email address is?

A - clara.cybervengers@mailurgent.com

Nope! Hackers (bad people) often have an email address that has a small mistake in it. Before replying, check the email address to make sure there are no weird words that shouldn't be in an email address.
In this example, it’s the word « urgent ».

B - clara@cybervvengers.com

Nope! Before replying to an email, check to see if there are any spelling mistakes in it, such as two of the same letters, like ‘v’ in this example.

C - clara.cybervengers@gmail.com

Nope! Before replying to an email, check the domain name (@hotmail.com, @orange.fr, @gmail.com, etc.) at the end of the email address. These addresses are very easy to create and can be used to trick you. Try to make sure that the address the email is coming from can be trusted.

D - clara@cybervengers.club

Well done! That's the right answer! This email address does not contain any ‘prohibited’ words or spelling mistakes, and its domain name is the same as the CyberVengers website.

QUESTION 3

In this episode, Clara was tricked because of an email she received. A hacker offered her extra points for her game. What emotions do you think hackers try to trigger?

A - Hunger

Nope! If you're hungry, go to the fridge... And come back ready to remember that hackers often play on empathy (kindness, sympathy), fear, a sense of urgency, curiosity, or even greed (the desire to win something).

B - Fear

Well done! That's one of the right answers! Fear, as well as curiosity, a sense of urgency, greed (wanting to win something) and empathy (kindness, sympathy) are the main emotions that hackers try to trigger.

C - Curiosity

Well done! That's one of the right answers! Fear, as well as curiosity, a sense of urgency, greed (wanting to win something) and empathy (kindness, sympathy) are the main emotions that hackers try to trigger.
