1 August 2017 - Welcome to the August 2017 edition of ‘In the Boxing Ring’.


This month, we discuss the growing issue of Spear Phishing. Since the early days of computer eMails, there has been spam, and one particular malicious form of spam is phishing. These are eMails that attempt to extract private information by deception and social engineering. The vast majority of these emails have been obvious to most, however, some are specifically targeted and composed to look like legitimate eMails, a process known as ‘Spear Phishing.’ This is discussed further on pages 2 to 3.


On page 4, we highlight the features and fixes to be released in this month’s patch Tuesday for Network Box 5. 


Finally, Network Box Germany signed a partnership agreement with Hannover-based cloud solution provider, acmeo GmbH, to offer cloud-based UTM+ protection to customers across Germany. In addition, Network Box was featured in various media outlets. You can find links to these articles on page 5.


The newsletter can be downloaded from the Network Box website.
