Fraudsters Still Find the Phishing Fine

Credit unions continue to attract the attention of phishers, according to the RSA Anti-Fraud CommandCenter.

The 7/24 monitoring/takedown operation of RSA Security said that 42% of American credit unions were targeted in March, compared with 35% of regional U.S. banks and 23% of nationwide banks.

Meanwhile, the so-called Rock Phish gang continues to drain tens of millions of dollars from bank accounts globally, RSA said, and accounts for more than 50% of phishing attacks worldwide.
The group uses a variety of well-known techniques in combinations that have helped it infiltrate thousands of e-mail servers, RSA said.
