Here is a link I came across, McAfee SiteAdvisor Phishing Quiz.

It is a 10 question quiz. How will you do? I score 8 out of 10.

I got 9 out of 10. Don't be impressed; I had to guess on at least 2, and just got lucky.

Shows what I know: I missed the first one (MySpace), and when they tell you the "secret" at the end of the quiz... The URL is EXACTLY what I was looking at; I thought that the OTHER one looked like the phony one!

Well, just like the other members regarding their missed questions: I wouldn't touch MySpace with a 10-foot pole, anyway!

The link is broken on my PC but there is a Spam Quiz and a Spyware Quiz

Spam Quiz:

Rating: Safety Guru Spammy e-mails don't even stand a chance of penetrating your inbox. Your practically clairvoyant knowledge of the Web allows you to distinguish between safe sites and those that might share your personal information with third parties. We're impressed! But remember that even one misstep can put your inbox at risk. With McAfee SiteAdvisor, easy to understand, useful information about each site you visit (how many e-mails received, what types) is now freely available.

Spyware Quiz:


YOU GOT 8 OF 8 QUESTIONS CORRECTRating: Safety Guru You laugh in the face of spyware and adware. Your practically clairvoyant knowledge of the Web allows you to distinguish between safe sites and those that pose potential danger. (We suspect that you may also know which soda machines might steal your money before you drop a quarter.) Our hats off to you.

Remember that even one misstep can put your PC at risk, so SiteAdvisor's free software can help you always stay safe and in control online.

The phising link quiz was broken for me, but:

Spam Quiz: 6/8 Tightrope Walker
Spyware Quiz: 5/8 Tightrope Walker

Well I use Mozilla Firefox with the NoScript add-on, not to mention I use Linux, which does not have much malware for it.
