If you own a business, you may think you’re protected from fraudulent activity at your bank, but, well, it’s complicated. For instance, a few years ago Choice Escrow lost $440,000 when fraudsters stole username and password information and used the information to raid the company’s BancorpSouth account. The money was transferred via wire to Cyprus. Choice said the bank failed to institute reasonable security measures. BancorpSouth said they weren’t responsible because the theft was carried out using legitimate login credentials. The bank had also asked Choice to adopt more stringent security measures, including requiring two people to sign off on wire transfer requests. Choice hadn’t followed the recommendation, and this was one of the reasons the court ruled against them.

When we think of malware infiltrating a computer network, stealing information, turning  infected computers into an army of slaves, we usually think of business or home computers, but computers are particularly open to attack at educational institutions. It’s in the very nature of universities to foster international academic exchanges and encourage the free flow of information. This increased use of more collaborative social networking tools such as blogging, wiki and online learning sites that have clear educational benefits is placing schools under more and more pressure to reappraise their network security policies.

Phishing attacks work because human instinctive behaviours are easily manipulated!

The word “phishing” comes from the slight variant of “fishing” and is pronounced in the same way. It is the act of pretending or impersonating a person or organization with the intention of tricking someone into giving out confidential information. Both use the same technique: to lure a person or a fish to danger by offering something that entices. My dad went fishing for marlin and mackerel almost every day of his life and won many amateur tournaments.  When he went fishing, he actually caught fish.  Often when people go “fishing,” they drop their line in the water and hope they catch something with low expectations of that.  My dad always caught something, so he was fishing in the traditional sense.

Actually, the underground market is vast and often as easy to navigate as any legitimate shopping channel. The first stop for stolen card numbers is a broker who buys cards in bulk. The broker sells the cards to a card shop, and this is where things get interesting.
