Phishing Attack Launched Against Adult Webcam Site
| by Sharon Khare |
|A phishing attack has been launched against users of an adult webcam site causing security company Sophos to warn that Internet users are not just targeting online bankers in their phishing campaigns. Spam experts based in Sydney, one of the global network of virus, spyware and spam analysis centers operated by Sophos, have identified an active phishing campaign focused on users of iFriends, which claims to be the world's largest online videochat community with more than two million registered users. Many of the video chatrooms hosted by iFriends are of an adult nature. The phishing email encourages recipients to update their account information at iFriends: Dear valued iFriendsÂ® member, It has come to our attention that your iFriendsÂ® account information needs to be updated as part of our continuing commitment to protect your account and to reduce the instance of fraud on our website. If you could please take 5-10 minutes out of your online experience and update your personal records you will not run into any future problems with the online service. However, failure to update your records will result in account suspension. Please update your records on or before Aug - 27 - 2006. Once you have updated your account records, your iFriendsÂ® session will not be interrupted and will continue as normal. However, the email links to a bogus website, which attempts to steal the user's name, address, credit card number, and even ATM PIN.|
