Number of active phishing sites reported in March, 2005: 2870 Number of brands hijacked by phishing campaigns: 78 Contains some form of target name in URL: 31% Country hostingrepparttar most number of phishing sites: United States of America Source:

Phishing attacks can be really sophisticated. Some time ago a flaw in Internet Explorer allowed hackers to display a false address while redirectingrepparttar 144911 user to an entirely different site making it almost impossible to distinguish a phishing attack from a legitimate email.

Possible solutions:

New technologies can provide a better means of countering phishers. One option being explored by a lot of banks isrepparttar 144912 use of a secure token, a small electronic gadget that generates a unique password to be entered each time a user logs ontorepparttar 144913 web site. This would make a phishing attack useless because withoutrepparttar 144914 physical possession of a token it is impossible to accessrepparttar 144915 account. This approach is somewhat similar to what is used at Automated Teller Machines aroundrepparttar 144916 world where you need to have bothrepparttar 144917 card andrepparttar 144918 Pin number in order to userepparttar 144919 machine.

One option is to use a technology popularly knows as PassMarks that effectively acts as a second password. After enteringrepparttar 144920 user name a unique image pre selected byrepparttar 144921 user is displayed before s/he is asked forrepparttar 144922 password. Ifrepparttar 144923 proper image is not displayedrepparttar 144924 user will come to know that s/he is not onrepparttar 144925 authentic site. Another option that a lot of organizations are exploring is using text messages instead of email messages. Text messages cost money to send, so Spammers are less likely to partake inrepparttar 144926 process making it easier to distinguish between legitimate messages and fakes.
