Phishing, Pharming, Spoofing - in German

For those who understand German, or who are learning it, gmx currently has a rather good series of articles about Phishing, Pharming, Spoofing and the the like.

These articles are aimed at users whose knowledge is at a relatively low level, and they explain, for example, why you should not supply your login details to that nice man on the phone who says he's from the government and is just doing a routine check that your connection is working.

I thought they would be quite good for explaining such cautionary measures to aged non-tech parents, and/or to naive children/teenagers who are beginning to be increasingly independent online.

Besides that, because they are written clearly, they make quite good language exercise for anyone who is familiar with these topics, but not with how to speak about them in German.
