PayPal 的釣魚網站

在 Gmail 收到一封屬名 PayPal 寄出的信件,說我的帳戶因安全因素暫停使用,還沒打開信件就已經知道這是一封釣魚信件,因為寄件者顯示:

PayPal Security Center <>

根本就不是 PayPal 官方會用的信箱,信件後面附上了一個連結:\cgi_bin\cmd_login/

隨便想也知道是個釣魚網站,用 firefox 打開,firefox 馬上就出現警告:

假的 PayPal

用 wget 下載網頁下來,發現這個釣魚網站裡面所有的連結都是使用真的網站上的連結,只有 Member Log-In 的地方的:

<form action=webscr-cmd_personal-run.php method=post>


比較訝異的是這封信因為是從 gmail 自己的信箱寄出,所以成功逃過了 Gmail 的過濾,沒有被當成 Spam,雖然說眼尖的人很容易察覺到信後所附的網址有問題,但我相信應該不少使用者會被騙到!

  1. 對阿, 這類金流公司最怕釣魚信件了~ 為了打擊phishing, paypal跟google有合作利用spf作MX驗證,來自paypal的合法郵件在header都會有spf=pass之類的訊息 ^^
