    Ugh, Mellanox sending idiotic "phishing like" marketing emails

    justinclift

      Just received an email announcing the new "Mellanox Community".

       

      (about time)

       

      However, all of the links in the message go to http://*.en25.com/<stuff here>.

       

      i.e. nothing to do with Mellanox

       

      This is exactly the behaviour of phishing attacks, and is directly the opposite of good practise.

       

      As IT people, we spend hours trying to convince people to NOT click links in emails, especially if the domain name of the links isn't for the group in question.

       

      So, whose bright idea was this, and can they please not do it again?
