May 2006

As phishing continues to mature, one of the last sanctities supposedly free of such malice has been under attack. The SSL/TLS encrypted Web page used for securely transmitting private information has seen increased abuse by phishers. They took advantage of loopholes in some SSL Certificate practices and obtained certificates that make them look legitimate.IE 7 will change that, and enterprise security managers should take notice:  the advent of High Assurance Certificates will prove its long-term effectiveness against phishing.
