CUs targeted in 33 of November phish attacks
BEDFORD, Mass. (12/19/07)--Credit union brands were targeted in 33% of phishing attempts during November, according to RSA Monthly Online Fraud Report. That's down from 40% in October but still up from September's 29%. Credit union brands were targeted more than regional U.S. bank brands but less than nationwide U.S. bank brands, according to the survey. Nationwide U.S. banks accounted for the largest portion of November's phish net at 44%--slightly more than in October's 43% and September's 38% readings. Regional U.S. banks were hit in 22% of November's phish attempts. That compares with 17% in October and 32% in September. During November, 159 brands were attacked, slightly higher than 154 in October. Also, there were few attacks against institutions that had not been attacked before. The report is based on monitoring by the RSA Anti-Fraud Command Center (AFCC), which has shut down more than 60,000 phishing attacks to date. For the full report, use the RSA resource link.
