Phishers targeting Flickr


...It seems that someone has decided it's time to start targeting Flickr, attempting to get users in phishing scams or with trojans. I'm going to assume that if enough of this has been happening that Flickr has decided to issue a warning, it's not just one or two attempts, it's a concrete attack.

Flickr has done the right things: they clearly lay out the nature of the attacks, they give their users a point of contact in case the user thinks he's been a target and they give the users some links to additional resources. Of course, since Flickr is a Yahoo company, I'm sure they've had a little experience with this before. Phishers targeting Flickr - Computerworld Blogs
