    Symantec has uncovered a cyber scam duping victims into handing over their financial information using a bogus security guidance web page. The security firm reported uncovering the phishing scam in a blog post on Wednesday. The scam targets its victims using a bogus message masquerading as a security alert from a legitimate, unnamed credit card service provider. "In March, we discovered a phishing site spoofing a popular credit card services company that asked users for confidential information, allegedly for additional security," wrote Symantec's Mathew Maniyara. The message instructed its victims to disclose sensitive banking information that could be used by the attackers to illegally access their finances. "The phishing site prompts users through a three-step procedure for activating their card and adding higher security. The first step asks users for personal and card-related information," wrote Maniyara.

    Une campagne de phishing spear ciblant les 11 entreprises du secteur énergétique s'est produite en octobre dernier, selon les industriels contrôle systèmes Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT).

    Après une compagnie d'électricité a posté sur son site Internet les noms, les adresses de messagerie d'entreprise, et les titres de travail des employés de l'industrie qui ont participé à un récent réunion du Comité, les attaquants étaient capables d'utiliser l'information pour leurs messages d'artisanat, ICS-CERT a dit dans son dernier bulletin d'information (PDF).

    Les e-mails malveillants demandé destinataires de cliquer sur un lien ci-joint qui dirigerait d'accéder la nouvelle adresse de courriel de l'expéditeur. Au lieu de cela, le lien conduit les utilisateurs à un site Web qui a servi de malware. Un autre courriel portant un attachement malveillant est censé être associé à la campagne, selon le bulletin.

    La campagne a échoué, menant à « aucune infections connues ou d'intrusions, » indique le rapport.
