AOL develops anti-phishing plan
America Online is trying to block the bait in phishing scams, announcing today that it will seek to identify bogus sites and prevent its users from gaining access to them.
AOL will work with Cyota, an anti-fraud and security company, to implement the plan, which will operate 24 hours per day. Phishing scammers create bogus sites that look like financial or retail sites in order to gather personal information that an unsuspecting user might type into them.
