Barclays Bank Phishing E-Mails Start Again


This note is a follow up to my previous note on Bank Phishing scams of the 1st of June. At that point it appeared that the attacks on Barclays and their customers may have stopped.

The graph shows all bank phishing scams I have received from the 5th of May until the 10th of June to about ten different web domain names.

As before, in the graph, blue are messages supposedly from Barclays and red shows other smaller attack on the Co-Operative Bank. Cream is attacks on PayPal accounts, light blue is anything outside of the UK and all other UK phishing is green.

The great majority of the new attacks on Barclays customers are very similar to many of those that occurred before the 19th of May. Could it be that the crooks and their servers had been located and supposedly destroyed, but that the interruption was only an irritance?

A note is now available for downloading and distribution which gives a full analysis.
