A rather generic but well-crafted fake American Red Cross email has recently been hitting inboxes around the world and asking recipients for donations: As the offered link can be seen leading to a legitimate PayPal account, users might feel safe following it.
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 Chinaís Taobao.com, but that doesn't mean that phishers and other scammers have stopped delivering emails supposedly sent by the e-commerce giant.
