An interesting blog entry from Google… a few key points:
- Phishing attacks are getting more creative and sophisticated, Many phishing webpages (URLs) remain online for less than an hour in an attempt to avoid detection.
- Legitimate websites that are compromised in large numbers so they can deliver or redirect to malware.
- Attack websites that are specifically built to distribute malware are used in increasing numbers.
