Remember our article at the end of November “Phishing on the rise“?
We were monitoring that the Chase phishing is becoming a serious part in our statistics for phishing and malware. Well, after almost three weeks, it seems that the phishers and malware authors are preparing for the holidays.
In comparison with the last month, until 16.12.2008, phishing went down by round about 66% percent (from 22031 to 7557 entries). Malware also went down by approximately 45% (from 5818 to 3213 entries). But, do not forget: we are just in the middle of the month. There is still a lot of time to catch up.
Overall, the situation in the last months is looking interesting:
We hope that the trend is going to remain like this, which means for all of us a quiet Christmas and New Year holidays.
