    "Spammers have switched their tactics with the latest "storm worm" run in hopes of getting more of the malicious messages delivered into company inboxes." This attack is one example of a social engineering attack. How effective are these attacks? I feel that these attacks are effective but I don't see why users of the internet don't be more careful. We all know the risks of opening unknown emails but users still do. Is this because of the lack on knowledge or just laziness?
