No Phish Flyer Update (04-12-2019)

We have updated our Flyer „Fraudulent messages - how to detect
fraudulent and phishing mails“. Not only detecting these messages is
important, but also an adequate reaction to them. For this we now refer
to the BSI (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik): if you
are unsure whether a message is a fraudulent message or if you have
fallen for a fraudulent message, you can ask the BSI for advice.  Soon
the leaflet will also be available in English.
