I noted previously that phishing would eventually move beyond the seedy prescription drug and sub-prime lending markets, and towards the mainstream (see Phish Tank in the House). Well, others have pointed out the next possible targets..
It seems that fresh hunk of grouper isn’t the only fish you may be ordering via the online market. (Note: yes, its understood that fish spoils quickly, and that is unlikely that folks are ordering actually fish online – it is a play on words – for those who don’t understand sarcasm).
But the threat is real, and some folks in the UK are on it. Read Supermarkets next in line for phishing attacks, and Crooks targeting internet shoppers for more information on what online merchants across the pond are doing to stop the issue in its tracks.
