stolen mobile phone

What can I do if my mobile phone is stolen?

You can prevent a thief from using your mobile phone subscription just by calling your phone company and telling them you lost your phone – they can block your device from being used. If you have a SIM in your phone, you can also lock your phone with a PIN code. The SIM will block any service if the PIN is wrongly entered three times.

What's the difference between pharming and phishing?

Both attacks are attempts to get your user names and passwords, but they are quite different. Phishing attacks usually will involve an email that appears to be from a company with which you do business prompting you to take action and log in to your account with the link provided in the email. The Web site you visit is not the real site but a cleverly designed imposter site that may seem real to you, so you will enter your username and password, which is then captured by the attacker.
