Research Project: help understand and protect against phishing, and receive $30 in Amazon gift cards!<br /><br />https://cloudsweeper.cs.uic.edu/phishing-study<br /><br /><br />What Are We Studying?<br /><br />Phishing is a popular and dangerous online attack used by malicious Internet users to steal passwords and account credentials. The attack tries to trick users by presenting fake versions of popular websites, usually served from similar domains, such as "newfacebook.com" or "gmail.verysecure.com". When users attempt to log into these fake versions of the pages, the attackers capture and store the users password. Phishing is believed to be the cause of recent public attacks against The New York Times, Conde Nast and branches of the French Government, among many others.<br /><br />The best method of defending against phishing attacks is to be careful when browsing the web, and to check that the website you are attempting to log into matches the URL of the website displayed in your browser’s URL. Doing so, though, requires a high amount of effort and vigilance on internet users. It is therefore important to better understand what patterns and practices websites can use to make their users less likely to be tricked by phishing attacks.<br /><br />What Is Involved in Participating in the Study?<br /><br />This study investigates what online practices make users more likely to fall victim to phishing attacks. We are looking for study participants who are willing to allow us to install a browser extension we have developed on their computer for one month. The browser extension counts how often users enter their password while using the Internet. For some users, the browser extension also will require you to re- authenticate with a small number of popular websites more often than you normally would. Otherwise, the browser extension would have no effect on your browsing experience.<br /><br />All information recorded during this study is anonymous, non-identifiable, and non-sensitive. At no point will any IP address, passwords, sites you visit, or any other sensitive information be recorded. We will never see or keep any of your personally identifiable information.<br /><br />Will I be Compensated for My Participation?<br /><br />Yes, in addition to helping to understand how to keep Internet user safe, all study participants will also receive $30 in Amazon Gift Cards, $15 at the start of the study and $15 upon successful completion of the study.<br /><br />Who can participate in the Study?<br /><br />Anyone who meets the following criteria is eligible to participate in the study:<br />* You are not currently incarcerated<br />* You are a student, staff, or faculty member at the University of Illinois at Chicago<br />* You use either Chrome or Firefox as your main browser<br />* You spend some time on popular social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr at least every other day<br />* You do a significant amount of your internet browsing on a laptop or desktop computer that you control and are able to install software on<br />* You are at least 18 years old<br /><br />How Can I Join the Study or Learn More?<br /><br />If you are interested in joining this study please visit https://cloudsweeper.cs.uic.edu/phishing-study. There you will find a brief questionnaire that asks for your email address, confirms your eligibility for the study, and has a brief survey collecting non-sensitive demographic information. Subject participants will be randomly selected from those who fill out the form on this page.<br /><br />Who is Conducting This Research?<br /><br />This research is being conducted by Chris Kanich at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Mike Reiter at the University of Northern Carolina. It has been approved by the UIC Office for the Protection of Research Subjects as protocol number #2013-0886. <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Mon, 15 Sep 2014 16:34:19 -0500 Mon, 15 Sep 2014 16:34:19 -0500 Town Hall with President Easter Town Hall with President Easter<br />Monday, October 6, 2014<br />11:30am to 12:30pm<br />M.
