Phishing hits iFriends

Date: August 28, 2006

Spam experts based in Sydney, one of the global network of virus, spyware and spam analysis centers operated by Sophos, have identified an active phishing campaign focused on users of iFriends, which claims to be the world's largest online videochat community with more than two million registered users. Many of the video chatrooms hosted by iFriends are of an adult nature.

The phishing email encourages recipients to update their account information at iFriends:

Dear valued iFriends® member,
