As a general rule, people try to think the best of others and not assume they’re up to no good.  But in some cases, kindhearted people open themselves up to hacking by trying to help out their fellow man.

While I’m not saying that you should always assume the worst in others, I strongly encourage you to be more aware of social engineering and the schemes they use to draw you into their hoax.  One good place to start your education on this subject is by reading this infographic. Presented by Veracode, it explains some of the tactics of these social engineers and offers ways to protects against them.
