    My remark has to do with this sentence:

    “…Users should not click on links or attached files coming from unknown sources via email or instant messaging software. …”

    This might give people the idea that by definition it is safe to click a link / attachment from a known (and 100% correct) e-mail address. BUT
    1. an email address can be forged
    2. the “trusted” sender’s e-mail account may have been hacked !

    Sadly, this tip about unknown sources is quite commonly given throughout the internet. So much so, that I had to correct ChatGPT on this 馃檪 馃檪 馃檪
