Phishing: Dont get hooked!

The summer of 2003 witnessed the birth of a new type of Internet related fraud scheme. The fraudsters themselves have nicknamed the scheme “Phishing”. And rightly so: they fish for the naïve end users static PIN code, bank account information or credit card number and expiration date.

The right technology, such as strong user authentication, and user education can dramatically reduce their catch. IT Observer - Phishing: Don’t get hooked!
