August 22, 2013 Phishing Report

Posted on: August 22nd, 2013 by Jim Pardonek No Comments

After a quiet few days, the phishers are at it again. The first one from today was easy to identify because it came from a London bank:

Our Valued Account Holder,

Lloyds TSB Bank technical services department is carrying
out a scheduled software upgrade to improve the quality of
services for the online banking customers.

Please click here to proceed.

Regards,
Lloyds TSB Online Banking.

The second one preys upon the panic reflex of a person who thinks that their credit card information has been stolen and used to buy airline tickets. Clicking on the link leads you to a page where it will ask you for personal information.
