    Personalised attacks - beware!

    Phishers are now using small snippets of information gained by other methods to personalise their phishing attacks - a bit like virus writers embedding code that used the email addresses from Outook to give apparent legitimacy.

    As with the virus model you can expect a lot more people to fall for it if the mail really appears to be legit with apparently personal details.

    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
