Phishing the Phishers

Interesting podcast from the British Computer Society
today discussing a Moroccan phishing kit called "Mister Brain" that you
can download and use for free.  It allows you to create a nice little
phishing site of your very own.  They even provide templates for spam
e-mail including brands such as Bank of America, eBay, PayPal and HSBC. 

The only thing is that each time you phish someone’s money, a little bit disappears into Mister Brain’s bank account.  Nice one!

Maybe
one day we’ll have identity theft stealing identities from stolen
identities of people who’s credit cards don’t exist to fund accounts
that are stealing from other accounts which also don’t exist.

If you don’t want to listen to the podcast, then you can read about it here.
