Standard Chartered Faces Phishing Attack

by CXOtoday Staff    Apr 03, 2009

It has been reported that customers of Standard Chartered Bank are being targeted by a phishing campaign that aim to steal account information.    

This was told to us by Websense Security Labs’, whose ThreatSeeker Network discovered this phishing campaign.

According to Websense, the phishing email tells recipients that there is a new message in their secure mailbox, and attempts to trick them to go to a spoofed Web site and enter their login information.

Standard Chartered had come under a similar attack in 2006, though that was focused on their Hong Kong customer base.
