Source: Google, 19th June 2012

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.
