Phishers target Alliance & Leicester


Phishers target Alliance & Leicester

Antony Savvas

Internet security company Websense has warned customers of the Alliance & Leicester bank they are the targets of a new phishing attack.

Customers receive a spoofed e-mail claiming that a new security upgrade at the bank requires them to verify their account information by visiting a link contained in the e-mail.

The link leads to a fake Alliance & Leicester site that requests their customer ID, password and PIN, before redirecting the user to the legitimate website of the bank.

The phishing site is hosted in Korea and was still operating at the time of Websense’s alert.
