An extremely legitimate looking email supposedly coming from PayPal has been hitting inboxes in the last few days, trying to trick customers of the popular e-payment giant to follow a link embedded in it, Webroot warns.
Joining the likes of Google, Facebook, Mozilla and others, PayPal has announced that it will be offering money for information about security bugs that affect their site (www.paypal.com).
PayPal users are currently being targeted with emails purportedly coming from the e-payment giant and asking for their help: Dear Customer, We need your help resolving an issue with your account.
PayPal might have passed the torch of the most phished brand to China’s Taobao.com, but that doesn't mean that phishers and other scammers have stopped delivering emails supposedly sent by the e-commerce giant.
A new phishing survey released by the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) reveals that in the second half of 2011, China’s Taobao.com became the world’s most frequently phished brand target, exceeding the previously most-victimized brand, PayPal.
