Yikes, a scary email phishing attempt for this person’s GitHub credentials. Shows how using a browser web extension for your password manager can help detect this by its autofilling.

@andreas Damn I bet many has fallen for that. Looks legit at first glance.

@andreas thanks nitrohorse, now I learned two important things: first is how an email phishing works, and second is that a password manager (I use KeePassXC) is apparently effective to protect us in this case.

@ademalsasa @andreas I use KeePassXC, but without integration into the browser, thus it would not have protected me.

@blipp mine too, blipp. However, I learned a new thing important is the one thing important to me. @andreas

@blipp
OT
By some moments, I thought it should be spellt 'KeepAssXC'.
I also hope it works that way

@ademalsasa @andreas

@andreas people should be very careful and always have this in mind: never click a link in a mail if u didnt made a request for the mail in the first place. why would they need to reconfirm the email address more than once?

@x @andreas I also use the same advice for old people - "if you get a CTA button in an email, manually go to the website in a web browser"
