RSA Online Fraud Intelligence Report - Nov 2006

RSA Monthly Online Fraud Intelligence Report

This November’s online fraud report for RSA, The Security division of EMC highlights an upsurge in phishing attacks and offers insight into a new phishing scam that is emerging.

This latest scam involves a phishing email requesting customers to click on a link within the email and enter their username and password in order to register for or upgrade to the bank’s new security enhancement. However, users are actually directed to a spoofed site that collects their online banking credentials for future use by fraudsters.

With several additional national banks being targeted in November, the percentage of nationwide FIs under attack doubled from October, jumping from 9% to 18%.

The RSA 24 x 7 Anti-Fraud Command Centre has been closely monitoring and acting aggressively against this marked increase in overall attacks against financial institutions of all sizes, and in addition has been actively working to identify the myriad of clever schemes being utlised by today’s fraudsters.
