Phishing dominates inboxes and spam conferences

The issue of phishing took center stage at the recent MIT Spam Conference, and with good reason.

It is one thing to separate a fool from a few hundred bucks over fake pills; it is quite another to separate the innocent from all their dough by stealing their bank account username and passwords, or hijacking an ecommerce account for perpetrating scams in someone else’s name.

Online scammers are going where the big money is – efforts to find solutions should naturally head that way too.
