Flash Phishing

We've now seen several phishing web sites that are using flash-based content instead of normal HTML. Probably the main to reason to do this is to try to avoid phishing toolbars that analyze page content.

Two recent examples, both targeting PayPal: www.ppal-form-ssl.com and www.welcome-ppl.com.

These sites look like the real PayPal front page, but they are actually Flash recreations. F-Secure : News from the Lab - January of 2007
