Adobe Phishing Alert
Websense Security Labs has received reports of a new phishing attack, using the brand name of Adobe Systems Incorporated. Users receive a spoofed email that provides a link to the phishing website, which is designed to mimic the Adobe online store. Users are given the option to buy and download Adobe products at substantially discounted rates. The site has links to awards hosted locally, which supposedly prove its veracity. When checking out, the user is prompted for credit card information.
This phishing site is hosted in China and was up at the time of this alert. WebsenseŽ - Security Labs Alert: Adobe
