Hard-Core PayPal Fraud Alert!

Look out, everyone.  Phishing just got a whole new look, and it’s beginning to look a lot like PayPal:

broadband ? Forums ? Spam, Scam and Charge Busters ? [Phishing] ALERT!! New Vicious PAYPAL phishing

Within 72 hours one of these Paypal phishes has ensnared over 1,100 victim accounts. It was targeted by multiple spams that used various referral links on hijacked machines. In the two years that I have been digesting and extracting phish data, I have never seen any that came close to 1,100 victims in a little over two days. In fact, I have never seen anything even close to that rate regardless of the up-time or the phish type. As far as I am concerned this is a record.
