Phishing Alert: Internal Revenue Service
WebsenseŽ Security Labs has received reports of a new phishing attack that targets American taxpayers and claims to be the Internal Revenue Service. Users receive a spoofed email message, which claims they may access and track their tax refund information online. Upon clicking the link in the email, users are taken to a fraudulent website. The fraudulent website prompts users for their first and last name, social security number, mailing and email address, credit card number, CVV2, and ATM pin.
This phishing site is hosted in Italy and was down at the time of this alert. WebsenseŽ - Security Labs Alert: Internal Revenue Service
