These days, it’s hard to perform a penetration test without attempting some sort of online social engineering, and most often, this takes the format of some type of phishing attack (whether targeted or across a wide user base).

I have been working on a review based on the 90 days of access they granted me late last year.

I’ll try to get it done this next week and post it here.
