Massive Phishing Attacks Strike Bank of China Users

QUOTE: We have noticed a lot of SMS-based web-phishing attacks in China targeting the Bank of China’s online users. They received a phishing SMS that is designed to look like it was sent by the bank as a reminder to its customers: “Dear user, your token has expired, please visit to reactivate your token.” The URL is similar to the bank’s official website but points to a phishing site that looks almost like the original bank website.
