We're Number Three!
The United States is now in third place on the list of countries targeted by the highest volume of phishing attempts. According to RSA's research, this is the first time that the U.S. has dropped out of the No. 1 spot. As of this moment, the United Kingdom leads the league with 42 percent, and Canada is posting 29 percent. That's an increase of approximately 400 percent for Canada in the first half of 2012. And RSA believes that the nearly equal exchange rates are making our neighbors to the north a more lucrative target. The U.S., meanwhile, picks up the Bronze with 22 percent. But that's a 28 percent decrease for the first half of 2012.
