Chocolate is good stuff.
Gifts are fun to receive.
A pair of psychologists from the University of Luxembourg—armed with nothing more than University of Luxembourg bags and a large supply of chocolates—convinced nearly half of those who received the candy to turn over their personal passwords.
The psychologists did so to study the effects that giving a small gift—in this case, the chocolate—would have on achieving compliance. Gift-giving is one tactic that falls under the umbrella term “social engineering,” and has been a tool that is gaining more popularity among hackers.
Hackers will do whatever is necessary to steal your information. Don't let them.
