In the new scam, targeted users receive an email message allegedly from American Express (in at least one variant the return address appears to targets as American [email protected]) advising the recipient to protect him or herself from fraud and phishing by establishing an "American Express Personal Safe Key (PSK)" to improve the security of their accounts.The email is well written and formatted like an American Express email; unlike some of the prior versions, it contains no mislabeled links (i.e., links whose text description contains link code that does not match the actual link).It should also be noted that shutting down phishers is difficult -- unless the perpetrators themselves are caught, even if phishing systems are taken down, it is simple for the criminals to relaunch attacks using new servers.And it isn't that hard for other criminals to copy the phishing interface, add a little code, and launch their own attacks from other servers as well. Please do not email about paying to have your porn site listed, there are no exceptions.
(Did you notice that the phishing email incorrectly separated Safe Key into two words?) Despite several errors that information-security professionals may find glaring (did you notice the missing © symbol at the bottom?), the current attack does seem well crafted, and, therefore, more likely than many to trick American Express customers, most of whom obviously do not deal with phishing attacks as part of their jobs.All of the requests for information appear in an interface that mimics that of the legitimate American Express website, with only minor, hard-for the-novice-to-notice flaws.Of course, someone might realize there is no reason for American Express to ask for some of this information -- the firm obviously knows your card numbers once you log in -- but many people have been de facto trained by credit card companies to answer such questions, having been asked to type or recite their numbers and answer all sorts of security questions when calling the providers by telephone.
