Phishers finding easy prey, 07/26/04

Leading financial institutions have adopted a more-aggressive
attitude toward online identity-theft cons known as "phishing
scams" in recent months. But companies could be unwittingly
helping phishers trick online shoppers, says a new report from a
U.K. Web developer.

On antiphishing.org

You see this at top:

What is Phishing?
Phishing attacks use 'spoofed' e-mails and fraudulent websites designed to fool recipients into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames and passwords, social security numbers, etc. By hijacking the trusted brands of well-known banks, online retailers and credit card companies, phishers are able to convince up to 5% of recipients to respond to them.

5% - amazing that it could be this high per phishing website incident.[/url]
