Phishing Attacks Decline
McAfee said it is charting a decline in the number of new phishing URLs over the last quarter. The firm said the number of new phishing URLs ebbs and flows throughout the year, trending upward typically during the holiday season.
The top five industries being targeted by phishers include finance, online auction sites, government, shopping and services, McAfee said. Companies in the U.S. are the most frequently targeted, with Amazon, American Express, Deloitte and eBay leading as the top companies being targeted.
