Gone phishing in a Storm
Trend Micro has uncovered the first phishing attack associated with the Storm worm. Storm is a highly-resilient botnet that up to now has just been used for sending out spam. Now it seems to be trying to lure in people to a fake Web page for the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Usually, when a company identifies a security problem, it has a solution to sell. Such is the case here. Trend's security software has identified the domains behind these phishing sites and will block access to them should a person try to reach these sites.
