CompuServe subscribers are being targeted in a phishing scam based on a spoofed email message claiming that their CompuServe account has expired and will be frozen if their account information is not updated.
The scam was reported in an alert from Websense Security Labs.
The spoofed email includes a link to a US-based phishing site that attempts to collect the user's screen name, password, billing address and credit card information.
Websense has also received reports of several key-logger attacks posing as emails from Playboy magazine.
The email, written in Portuguese, offers the reader the opportunity to download the newest edition of the magazine, suggesting that it is in advance of public availability.
The download then places key-logging software on the user's machine which enables keystrokes to be tracked to obtain banking passwords.
