Phishing for USE Credit Union Members
As promised here is my next post already. Couldn't have been 30 minutes ago when I promised that I would keep them coming. This post involves cell phone phishing scams. lately I've received text messages from what appears to be USE Credit Union.
The text message alerts the recipient of Unauthorized Identity Access then directs them to visit a fraudulent website which requires entry of credit/debit card information. Text book lack of an SSL Connection,privacy warnings displayed in the browser,etc.
Viewing the source of the page revealed a well comment application for customized credit card theft...
This time it was phishing next time could easily be a targeted attack with malicious code dropping a back door.
