Phishing for Chase Bank Credit Cards

For some reason this weeks big phishing party is looking for Chase Bank members. Since I don’t have any accounts at Chase Bank it’s an obvious fake but I’m sure some folks will fall for it.  It did give me a chance to try Internet Explorer 7’s new phishing controls.  The “Beta 2 Preview” of IE7 was released yesterday and I’ll tell you what I think later this week.

Even though I feel obligated to download and review the latest preview of IE 7, I still wouldn’t recommend the average computer user ever download beta or preview software.  Luckily, there’s another new tool in the fight against phishing that I expect to be announced later today.
