« on: January 08, 2009, 05:38:15 PM »

Threat Type: Phishing Alert

Websense® Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has discovered a phishing site emulating the Web site belonging to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), the UK government's taxation authority. The fake site is hosted in Denmark and uses the same stylesheet and graphics as the real HMRC Web site.

Recipients first receive an email advising them that they are due a tax refund. This email contains a link to the phishing Web site. The phishing site aims to collect personal information such as name, address, and credit card information. Upon submitting the data, the user is redirected to the real HMRC site.
