Disscecting a phish: almost too clever

By Steve Riley, 11 August 2010

Recently a customer forwarded a phishing email he received. It was pretty close to the usual: claims of too many failed logins necessarily requires account suspension pending verification. This one had a curious twist: rather than encouraging the victim to click a malicious link, the email included an attachment. Not just any attachment, mind you, but an HTML form the victim was instructed to open in his web browser. The attacker did a decent job spoofing the Amazon look and feel–he pulled CSS directly from our site.
