In a recent phishing attack against customers of the Nordea Bank, thieves netted about $1.1m.
About 250 clients were fooled by a phishing email that was portrayed to be sent by the bank and promised a free anti spyware applications. The download instead proved to be a password stealing application.
The attackers paid a mere $3,000 to stage the attack (see picture on the left). At least, that's what they paid for a professional malware authoring tool that allows anybody to build a custom virus. And then we're still talking about the high end version – malware tools start at a few hundred bucks, Dmitri Alperovitch (pictured below), a Principal Research Scientist with Secure Computing, said during a session at the RSA Conference.
