The UF Information Security Office’s annual summer contest is open June 1 – 30, 2022. This year, all you have to do is play Phishle — UFIT’s information security take on the popular game “Worldle®” — to qualify for weekly gift card drawings.
Never played Phishle? Like Wordle®, Phishle is a word game. But Phishle focuses on players learning about social engineering terms such as phishing, smishing, vishing, and tailgating while solving the daily word puzzle. Phishle launched in Spring 2022 by Spencer Fasulo, a freshman computer science major who interns with the Information Security Office (ISO). Before entering the Phishle contest, check out the ISO’s great new social engineering webpage. You’ll learn what to watch out for and be better equipped to complete the daily Phishle game and win a gift card!
Phishle players get an entry for each 10 words they find. After achieving 10 correct words, fill out the form provided with your contact information. Two gift cards will be awarded each week, with winners announced on UFIT’s Twitter and Instagram accounts. Gift cards will need to be picked up in the 720 Building by local winners. Winners residing outside of Alachua County will receive their gift cards via US Mail.
