Despite increased user awareness, phishing activities represent a serious threat to information security. Phishing sites are increasingly sophisticated and continue to defraud users. Computing professionals need to know how phishing works. This paper presents a series of laboratory exercises to educate future computing professionals about the mechanics of phishing attacks. These laboratories teach students how an email "From" address can be spoofed, how phishing emails can lure their victims, and how easy it is to produce a fraudulent web site and a phishing email. This paper discusses how future computing professionals can minimize phishing vulnerabilities.
