ISF 2005 Phishing Report

As we move from pranksters to pro's and organised crime gets in on the action, information security starts becoming more complex and scary.

A new report from the Information Security Forum (ISF) warns that Trojan-based attacks will take over from email phishing in the US and Europe as Trojans become more sophisticated and harder to stop. Email phishing will move away from English speaking regions to Asia, China and the Middle East, to be replaced by a surge in sophisticated and well-organised Trojan attacks.

They also highlight the increasing use of ‘moles’ placed or groomed in organisations to gain access to high-worth customers or company data.
