Phishers don't like Mondays

Symantec is declaring 2006 as the year that fraud grew up. The security firm observed more than 7 million phishing attempts each day with more than 900 unique messages per day over the first six months of this year. This is an 80 per cent increase over the second half of 2005, when Symantec logged roughly 500 unique phishing messages per day.

...Symantec also suggests that phishers seem to favor the three day weekend. The company noted that the volume of phishing e-mails tends to dip during weekends and rebounds on Tuesdays. Phishers don't like Mondays -
