Mass Securities Phishing Scam in China

Phishing Alert: Mass Securities Phishing Scam in China

Websense® Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has discovered that numerous newly-registered fake securities Web sites have started to appear in China.

These phishing sites host a large amount of false information about stock and negotiable securities under the names of some of the big securities Web sites, trying to deceive people into paying for the information or registering for their stock analysis service. They then collect personal information such as social insurance number, full name, address, date of birth, mother’s maiden name, and credit card information.

Here are some screen shots of the phishing site:
