Spoof Websites

Over the weekend I reported on a website that was collecting usernames and passwords for Paypal. After contacting the webmaster, the website posted a disclaimer. But on Monday May 29th, 2006 the website was at it again, attempting to lure users into entering their username and password. Upon entering this information, the user would be redirected to another page that asked for your credit card and banking data.

This morning another fake image was displayed, claiming the web site was disabled. Just ten minutes ago, the website is showing a message to visitors that they had been hacked, and they do not phish for private information.

I have gone through their home page, and it appears to be a front for phishing, as the site offers no real information on advertising.

Will keep everyone updated regarding this site.

Give no data via email to anyone, always log onto websites directly.

Also, be careful when clicking on unfamiliar links, a trojan can be downloaded to one's computer by such an action through the execution of a java script.
