Muito bem, parece que os senhores do “phishing” estão a ficar cada vez mais sofisticados. Já não cometem os erros mais básicos, como por exemplo mau inglês, erros ortográficos, ou querer enganar o pessoal com base em URLs escondidos atrás dum texto diferente; em vez disso baseiam-se 100% na engenharia social, e fazem-no relativamente bem, o que faz com que as ferramentas automatizadas já não os detectem.
Raios partam estes gajos… deviam ser todos fuzilados.
