PRLog - Oct. 30, 2012 - San Francisco -- Phishnix, a leading Phishing Diagnostic Solution, will be showcasing its new phishing game at the upcoming Hacker Halted Summit 2012 in Miami, Florida. Phishnix is an innovative product that helps customers do a behavioural analysis of users against a phishing attack. It simulates a phishing attack and determines who fell for the attack and trains them to avert attacks.

Hacker Halted is a global series of Computer and Information Security conferences presented by EC-Council. The objective of the Hacker Halted conference is to raise international awareness towards increased education and ethics in IT Security. This year marks Hacker Halted 14th anniversary.

Phishnix is all set to spice-up the event with some exciting activities for visitors at Booth #17. With a special game designed for the event, Phishnix invites visitors to a contest. The point of the game is to spot common phishing tactics. If one can spot all of the phishing mistakes they will be entered to win the iPad mini!.

Through this contest Aujas aims to gauge the participants’ level of understanding of Phishing and Hacking attacks, and also aims to create more awareness about them.

"This game was created to provide a fun and informative activity to raise phishing awareness (http://www.phishnix.com/index.php). Phishing is a huge risk for companies and it is important for people to understand that." Said Sameer Shelke, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer at Aujas.

With highly sophisticated hacking methods increasingly being employed by hackers, understanding hacking techniques and averting hacking attacks are extremely crucial in today's scenario. While Hacker Halted 2012 aims to unravel the different dimensions of hacking and the means to prevent hacking, Aujas will participate in the event and continue to contribute to the spread of awareness about hacking.
