For those interested in learning more about the anatomy of todays phishing scams, Net-Security.org has an interview with two security researchers who are speaking out about the phishing underground.

From the article:
"What started as a simple examination of phishing sites, turned into an extraordinary view of the ecosystem that supports the phishing effort that plagues modern day financial institutions and their customers."

Read the interview for a look at the kind of attackers we're dealing with, phishing tactics and tools, and what actually happens when your sensitive information is stolen.
