'Smart' phishing attack targets Bank of Ireland


Bank of Ireland customers have been hit by yet another phishing scam in the form of an email asking users to update their security details.

The fake security alert landed in inboxes on Friday evening, and may have fooled a number of customers into handing over their access codes and passwords, redirecting them to a website designed to collect the details. As of today the fraudulent site appears to have been disabled.

A spokesperson for the bank confirmed it had received several calls from customers about the scam, and that some PINs had been changed. 'Smart' phishing attack targets BoI | The Register
