  5. 5. Phishing in Romania (2007-2009) • 2007 – 7 attacks • 2008 – 26 attacks (50% targeting the same institution) • 2009 – 187 attacks already (98% targeting the same institution) • 2009 – 1’st ½ … anyone want to make a prediction? Don’t be fooled by randomness!
  6. 6. Now… why would anyone start phishing? – With the current market turmoil, what's the easiest way to make a small fortune? – Start off with a large one! • Quote of the day (from a trader): quot;This is worse than a divorce. I've lost half my net worth and I still have a wife • This market stinks so bad…that even Chuck Norris can’t make any money.
