Phishers chip away at web security

From VNU Network:

Nearly 13,000 new phishing emails and more than 2,500 phishing websites were spotted last month, the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) has reported.
Phishing uses emails designed to lure internet users to counterfeit websites which attempt to trick them into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers.
By hijacking the trusted brands of well known banks and online retailers, phishers are able to convince up to five per cent of surfers to respond and leave themselves open to identity theft and financial loss, the APWG warned.
