A Threefold Clueless Phisher

I sure have been posting a lot about phishers lately, but they've given me plenty to talk about.

Like a Washington Mutual (wamu) one arriving today whose From: address is service@paypal.com, and whose "re-confirm your account information by" date is January 15, 2005 (today is March 26th).

Unfortunately, this phisher hosts his Web form through a hijacked server in China, so it may take awhile before it gets shut down.

Fortunately, the link in the wamu phish message links to a PayPal phish form.

I keep hearing in my head a "Simpson's" audio montage of several dozen Homer "d'oh" sounds in rapid succession.
