More Phishing with SSL

We have received a new Phish this morning that is using a domain name that is very similar to the real domain and that uses SSL. This is often referred to as a cousin domain name. Although we have seen sites using SSL in the past, this is a reminder that simply looking for the locked key at the bottom of a web page is not a sufficient way to determine if something is "real" or not. The site is hosted in Germany and was up at the time of this blog entry. Websense Security Labs - Blog
