Next Up: Nordea Sweden Posted by Era @ 06:55 GMT

nordea-se-2006-05-08Well, it had to happen. After the multiple phishing attempts against Nordea Finland, we are now seeing phishing attempts targeting Nordea Sweden (again). Fortunately, they are just as unconvincing as the ones targeting Nordea Finland earlier, if not even more so. The message has a text and a HTML version — the text version (which many "modern", "graphical" email clients will not display by default) is particularly hilarious, although obviously, this is fundamentally a dead serious incident.

For the record, the anti-phishing rules we already have in our spam scanner detected this message as a phishing attempt.
