More lures being pulled from the phishing tacklebox

Sophos, through its participation in the Anti-Phishing Working Group, reported that phishing attacks are still rising in number, with more than half of businesses surveyed saying they received at least one phishing lure a day (and almost a quarter receiving 5X that number). Unique phishing attempts increased almost 73% between December ’04 and December ’05, according to anti-phishing central, so even if the stats are a little bit scare tactic, it is hard to argue with such a big jump.
