AOL redirection used to Phish

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

We know phishing is on rise and spammers use all sorts of tricks to make their emails look legitimate, I just came across this particular email offering me $189 of tax refund and looking at the link shows up that the spammer used AOL to redirect to the phishing website, to the naked eye ofcourse AOL seems to be the culprit but its bad on their part, AOL needs to secure their redirection service and stop redirecting to malware and phishing websites.

This is the link that does the trick http://www.aol.com/redir.adp?_url=http://phishingwebsite.here
