    02 May 2006 - Phishing at record levels in March
   Viruslist.com news from Kaspersky Labs says the monthly report for March
   by the Anti-Phishing Working Group shows that phishing activity remains
   at very high levels. The USA remains the largest single hoster for
   phishing sites with 35% of sites based there.
   Another new type of phishing attack was recently reported by security
   firm Cloudmark, which claims that VoIP technology is now used by
   phishers. In this new type of attack scammers send an email that
   contains a telephone number accessible via a VoIP service. The victim is
   then connected to a line that sounds like their telephone banking
   service and is prompted to verify personal details. So far Cloudmark has
   discovered two attacks that use this scheme.
