Look out! New mode in Internet Fraud

Fraudsters often looking for new ideas to fool the user. From recent observations, there are now some new tricks used by phishing sites to steal the identity of visitors who do not understand the threat they were facing.

The trick being rapidly adopted in disguise as a phishing site is a leading manufacturer of software applications and offer a discounted price. They assert that the product is indeed being in the promo. Users can 'save' up to 80% if the purchase there.

As usual, the user will be prompted to enter billing information, personal information and credit card details to make purchases.

"Personal information includes email addresses and phone numbers. Credit card details are requested from a credit card number, CVV code until the period of validity, "said Mathew Maniyara, an analyst from Symantec Security Response, 13 September 2011. "If users are stuck to fill out the form, the perpetrators have managed to get all the information needed to gain a big advantage," he said.

Although bidding was used as bait fake, but it's not the only trick used. The next tactic used is to place the site in a new domain name registered, indexed by a number of popular search sites and have a good page ranking.

"Actors get a good page ranking because they menyantumkan keyword searches that are often used the popular products in the domain name," said Maniyara.

For example, Maniyara mention, it uses domain names such as "" and if users do a search with a keyword in the search engines, they will find a phishing site in question is at the top of the first page of search results.

It turns out, does not end there. This phishing site also uses other tricks to trap more and more users. They put up a fake security seals at the bottom of the page.

"The original security seal mounted on the ordinary web sites by third parties, general software security company, to ensure that the website in question is really genuine," said Maniyara.

If the original security seal is clicked, the user will get a pop up window that is provided by third parties, which displays details about the site and the encryption used to secure. Then, how the fraudsters overcome this?

"They are using fake security seals from two leading security companies," said Maniyara. "When clicked, will display a pop-up window to a false reference site," he said.

From the observations, said Maniyara, fake security sites that use the address http://www. (Name of security company). Com (fake domain). Com.

"At first glance, he seems like a seal that directs to the URL address of a third party that is safe, but actually not," said Maniyara. "If we look at the URL address in full, we can know that the site was a fake site," he said.

Maniyara mention, the best way to find out if the security seal is genuine or not is by clicking on it and see the full URL address in the pop-up window. "Pop up window that appears is supposed to use a padlock icon, the address https and use the address bar green," he said.
