It seems that the flood of people clicking on links from emails that purport to be from banks continues unabated. Please visit these links and protect yourself from Phishing, okay? Oh, and if you are using windows and Internet Explorer 5 or 6, upgrade to Firefox, Opera or IE7, your computer and bank account will thank you.
With the redirect I have in place, these should be the last stats I see from this hack, but on Thursday someone used my uploads system to create a phishing website and by Sunday their phishing email was out there.
I’ve redirected the phished URLs to an anti-phishing advice site but I’m fairly freaked out by the sheer number of folks who have been taken in by this.
Over 500 people have clicked through, 450+ since I removed the hacked content.
This sucks for them, it really does.
I asked my provider to go ahead and pass along any information about the breach to paypal who asked for logs and so on.
Maybe I should have kept the files?
Hopefully no one was taken in by the scammers.
