How to Fight Phishing

This is a follow-up to the OCt. 18, 2005 posting entitled The Fight Against Phishing Sites.

Last week, the O'Reilly Network published a very good overview on the subject, What Is Phishing (Or, How to Fight Phishing at the User-Interface Level).

Phishing describes Internet scams using emails designed to look like they come from legitimate institutions in order to con people into providing personal financial information or passwords.

The article describes how typical phishing attacks occur, the techniques used, defenses against them and concludes with a look ahead.
