Gmail, Hotmail et al email account compromise

Oct 07, 2009

The media is reporting this week on thousands of email user names and passwords being published online.

7Safe’s Dan Haagman was on Sky News live last night discussing the phishing scam that has compromised the security of an estimated 30,000 users.  The scam affected users of Google Mail, Hotmail, Yahoo, Comcast, Earthlink, and AOL.

Unfortunately, it seems that social engineering is alive and well.
