Phishing Alert: Southwest Airlines Federal Credit Union

WebsenseŽ Security Labs has received reports of a new phishing attack that targets customers of Southwest Airlines Federal Credit Union. Customers receive a spoofed email claiming that their account must be updated to protect their online information. Upon clicking the link provided, users are sent to a fraudulent website that is hosted in the United States and was up at the time of this alert. This site, which uses a registered domain name that is very similar to the real domain (AKA: cousin URL), requests the user's account name and password. Upon entering that information, the user is taken to a second site that requests his or her first and last name, credit card account information, and address.
