    Hundreds of Phish Kits on the Loose header

    TrendLabs has received notice that hundreds of phishing kits designed to generate phishing sites are currently being actively used, including those used by the so-called Mr. Brain. To jiggle everyone’s memory, Mr. Brain is not an individual operating by his lonesome, but rather a group of phishers who are themselves targeting phishers.

    The newly discovered phishing kits — numbering over 400 — are targeting top Web 2.0 sites (social networking, video sharing and VoIP sites), free email service providers, banks, as well as the more popular e-commerce Web sites. Some of the major financial institutions are the following:

    • Barclays
    • BankOne
    • Charter
    • Chase
    • Citibank
    • HSBC

    Research Project Manager Ivan Macalintal is further investigating the matter. Updates will be provided as they come.

    Hat tip to MarkMonitor.
