Activity 10.2: Analyze a Phishing Email*

If you're not familiar with the process, most email providers have help available on how to access the headers.

b) who sent it, and
c) what path it traveled before you received it.
c) What red flags stand out,
d) What would you do to identify future phishing emails based on the header information?
Part 2: Analyze the email content
Now that you have reviewed the header, you can move on to the body of the email. In this phase, review the content of the message, paying particular attention to common artifacts found in phishing emails. You should look for embedded links and record any deceptive links or embeds. You can also identify typos, poor grammar, and other typical elements of a phishing email.
Part 3: Use an automated tool
Use one or more automated email header analyzers to review the header from part 1.
