That's a pretty good phishing attem-- wait a minute, WHAT date?



  • I have to admit this phishing attempt had me going for a second-- until I noticed the date. How do you even fuck that up?



  • Maybe it took 20 minutes to generate the email, so it used the time when it started processing and the date when it finished.

    Also, how did they manage to fuck up the Google logo that badly? Here's a real Google email:



  • (Psst... hey Ben L, before responding look at a calendar so you won't look like an idio--)

    Too late.

    If this was you, and you are having trouble accessing your account, complete the troubleshooting steps listed above.

    What troubleshooting steps?



  • Obviously that email was sent on the second Wednesday of the week.



  • I get spam or phishing emails all the time which haven't had the tokens replaced.

    Dear [NAME],

    We recently noticed your email address [EMAIL] ....

    TRWTF here is that Google will apparently deliver emails with a From: line containing what looks like one of their addresses. Seriously, Google? What decade is this? This is one of the lowest-hanging pieces of fruit you should be going after..



  • Obviously* the day-name lookup accidentally swapped the day-of-month and the month around and used the day from a local timezone more than 20 minutes ahead of UTC.
